A science fiction comic book come to life onstage as a vintage-style radio play, The Intergalactic Nemesis is a theater production single-handedly defining the new genre of "live-action graphic novel." The family-friendly show features live actors, hand-drawn comic-book artwork projected two stories high, and fun retro Foley sound effects, with a live keyboard score. The story, packed with pop culture references to cult favorites like Raiders of the Lost Ark and Star Wars, pits three heroes against a force of alien sludge monsters set to invade Earth, in a spectacle the Austinist describes as "totally nuts and a ton of fun!"
PLUS—Meet and greet with the stars after the show in the Zellerbach lobby! Free to ticket holders of The Intergalactic Nemesis.
