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 set of 5 very different short pieces using various performance art forms. All ostensibly based on the theme, "there's no place like home". I went with several family members with widely varying tastes. We all enjoyed it enormously.
ARTiculation and Company One present a competitive multidiscliplinary night of extravagant, show-stopping brilliance spanning three nights. O_ut of the Box_ brings performance to the next level.
Using the theme of “There’s no place like home,” local performers from all backgrounds — actors, musicians, dancers, poets, puppeteers and everything in between — will converge on this multimedia battleground, the likes of which the Boston theatre scene has never seen. A winner will arise from the dust, judged completely by you, the audience.
