When The Intergalactic Nemesis Live-Action Graphic Novel premiered in 2010, more than 2,100 people turned out. Shortly thereafter, it was featured on National Public Radio and Conan O'Brien's TV show. Now in its second touring season, the production will hit the Maui Arts & Cultural Center (MACC) on Wednesday, Jan. 9. This one-of-a-kind, all-ages stage show is not to be missed.
The premise is simple: This period (1933) adventure story (with no shortage of laughs) features Pulitzer-winning reporter Molly Sloan, her intrepid assistant, Timmy Mendez, and a mysterious librarian named Ben Wilcott as they face the most serious threat Earth has ever known--an impending invasion of sludge monsters from the planet Zygon.
The telling is what makes the experience of The Intergalactic Nemesis so incredibly unique: While three actors, one Foley sound artist, and one keyboardist perform all the voices, sound effects and music, more than 1,000 hand-drawn, full-color, blow-your-mind comic book images blast from the screen. The entire production is performed live, ala radio plays from the 1930s and 40s, but with 21st century visual effects. It's a sci-fi-horror-suspense-comedy-romance presented in a new format.
Take me to your leader. The Intergalactic Nemesis Live-Action Graphic Novel tells the tale of Earthlings who must face the most serious threat their home has ever known--an impending invasion of sludge monsters from the planet Zygon!
