intergalactic-Nemesis-01

It's alive! The Intergalactic Nemesis began its existence as a radio play, before metamorphosing into a graphic novel and now that it's reached its mature form as a live stage show, it is coming to Summer Fest to conquer our charts and minds. With tongue planted firmly in cheek, The Intergalactic Nemesis skewers and then lightly roasts pulp serials, science fiction classics and boy's adventure stories into a post-modern kabob of pop culture tropes. The show is presented as a live graphic novel, with comic book stills projected behind actors, accompanied by music and foley sound effects.

$10-35. 5pm. Sunday, June 30. Power Center for the Performing Arts. 121 Fletcher St. 734-994-5999. www.a2sf.org—JS
