Intergalactic Nemesis

The Intergalactic Nemesis Live-Action Graphic Novel  is a one-of-a-kind theatrical experience that mashes up radio drama with comic-books. Three actors voice dozens of characters; one Foley artist creates hundreds of sound effects; one keyboardist performs a score of thousands (yes, thousands!) of notes; while on a two-story high screen we project more than 1,250 individual, full-color, hand-drawn, hi-res, comic book images to tell the story visually.

The premise is simple: a period adventure story (with no small share of laughs) featuring 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.

When The Intergalactic Nemesis Live-Action Graphic Novel premiered in 2010, more than 2,100 people turned out. Shortly thereafter, it was featured on NPR and Conan O’Brien. Now, in its second touring season, the production hits 40 venues around the US, UK, and Canada, including a run at the New Victory Theatre on Broadway. This one-of-a-kind all-ages show is not to be missed.
