The year is 1933. At the very moment that Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Molly Sloan and her intrepid assistant Timmy Mendez find their story on international pelt smuggling at a dead end, their contact is assassinated right before their eyes. Yes, Molly and Timmy have stumbled upon the story of the century: an impending invasion of sludge monsters from the planet Zygon.
Onstage, three actors, one sound-effects artist and a pianist provide the voices, sounds and music for more than 1,250 hand-drawn, full-color, blow-your-mind comic book images as they are projected on a screen, telling the larger-than-life story. Also see Book 2: Robot Planet Rising at 7:30 p.m. Plan to join the performers between performances for the Out-Of-This-World Feast. Feast: $26/person.
