The world tour of the cult favorite that's played a limited run on Broadway and sold out the Kennedy Center is now coming to The Mary D'Angelo Performing Arts Center stage!

No, it's not The Shadow. It's not The Lone Ranger. It's not Little Orphan Annie or Flash Gordon or Buck Rogers (though it hearkens back to all of them). The Intergalactic Nemesis is an uproarious and nostalgic look back at the glory days of radio plays, but with a twist. Telling an all-ages adventure story set in the 1930s, The Intergalactic Nemesis mashes up comic-book and radio-play formats into a one-of-a-kind theatrical experience, a new art form: the live-action graphic novel.

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. If you’ve got an inner 12-year-old (or an actual one living in your home) The Intergalactic Nemesis is one show you don’t want to miss.

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.
