The time, two weeks after the conclusion of Target Earth. The place, Robonovia, the Robot Planet. When commander El-Bee-Dee-Oh is lost in space, it’s up to Molly Sloan and Timmy Mendez to find him.
But when Molly’s former fiancé shows up with his assistant (and Soviet spy) Natasha Zorokov in tow, Molly and Timmy discover a plot that threatens not only the very existence of Robonovia, but the safety of Earth itself. Will they uncover the source of the problem? And just who is this robot who calls himself “Alphatron”, anyway?
Last season, the Center presented a whole new form of theatre, the Live-Action Graphic Novel with The Intergalactic Nemesis, Target Earth. So it is with extreme pride that we present the sequel: Robot Planet Rising. No Intergalactic Nemesis experience necessary!
Three actors voice the dozens of characters, a Foley artist creates all the sound effects, and a pianist plays a cinematic score, while more than 1,250 individual full-color hi-res comic book panels tell a hilarious sci-fi adventure story visually from an enormous movie screen. And it’s all done live in front of your eyes.
The Intergalactic Nemesis has been featured on NPR, PBS, Conan O’Brien, The Wall Street Journal, and dozens of other outlets. The New York Post called its limited run on Broadway “Great fun! [A] happily retro multimedia extravaganza”, The Cleveland Examiner describes it as “pure theater magic,” and The Austinist recommends it as “totally nuts and a ton of fun… Do not miss it.”
But don’t just leave it to the experts. See it for yourself. If you’ve got an inner twelve-year-old (or an actual one living in your home) The Intergalactic Nemesis is one show you don’t want to miss. For the kid in everyone!
