Theatre Thing from Outer Space

. May 29, 2013.

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.

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
