What is The Intergalactic Nemesis?

The Story Thus Far...

The year is 1933. Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Molly Sloan and her intrepid research assistant Timmy Mendez team up with a mysterious librarian from Flagstaff, Arizona, named Ben Wilcott. Together, they travel from Rumania to Scotland, across Europe to North Africa, then to the Robot Planet (in the Effdillinplitzenpire Galaxy), and finally to Imperial Zygon to face the most terrible threat humanity has ever known: an invading force of sludge-monsters from outer space known as the Zygonians.

Like "Elvis coming back to play Tupelo in 1956 or Marvin Gaye selling out his hometown’s Kennedy Center in ’72." --The Austinist

"Brilliant... The ending makes you want to high-five your neighbor in anticipation of the next installment." --CultureMap Austin

"I felt like the nerdy little 10-year-old kid that I once was, bouncing off the walls and grinning as I talked to my friend about my favorite parts." --Austin Post

The world tour of the cult favorite from Austin, Texas, that's played a limited run on Broadway and sold out the Kennedy Center now has a sequel...

Last season (or whichever season you presented it), [YOUR VENUE] presented a whole new form of theatre, the Live-Action Graphic Novel, with The Intergalactic Nemesis, Book One: Target Earth.  So it is with extreme pride that we present the sequel: Robot Planet Rising. Here's how it works:

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 calls “pure theater magic,” and The Austinist recommends 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.

You don't need to have seen Target Earth to fall in love with this show. The story here stands alone. So, if you’ve got an inner twelve-year-old (or an actual one living in your house) The Intergalactic Nemesis - Robot Planet Rising is one show you don’t want to miss.

For the kid in everyone!
