Delve into the action-packed world of Japanese manga comics and anime in a retro-sci-fi performance about the man considered the father of the genres. Through on-stage drawing, interactive video and even puppetry, Astro Boy and the God of Comics centers on Osamu Tezuka, sometimes referred to as "Walt Disney of Japan." His most famous character, Astro Boy, came about during his country's post-war era as an embodiment of a peaceful use of nuclear energy. This riotous comic book-style adventure combines the fictional world of that crime-fighting boy robot with Tezuka's life story and the history of Japanese animation. Learn More

A Boston Premiere by Aditi Brennan Kapil
Directed by M. Bevin O’Gara
Love Person is a transcendent four-part love story told in Sanskrit, American Sign Language, English and email. Two couples are rocked to their cores when love unexpectedly transcends sexual orientation, physical attraction, and social structures. The four find themselves inextricably bound by technology, translation, and the breakdown of language itself.
This play is meant to be enjoyed by hearing and Deaf audiences alike, and therefore each performance is self-interpreted through the use of ASL-fluent actors and text projections. Patrons needing ASL preferred seating should contact us for accommodation. Audio-assistance devices will also be available for all performances except for June 2nd at 8:00pm.__
