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.

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.

My husband and I attended the Splendor when we visited Boston. It was a very nice venue. I noticed some people were surprised about the closeness to the actors and actresses. It was a good play, a little too long though. Great acting. Particularly, Alexandria Danielle King, Hannah Cranton, Becca Lewis, Molly Kimmerling, Obehi Janice and Danny Mourino and James Milord.
