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

Witty and surprisingly funny work, considering such a serious topic. The focus is on the experience of immigrants through language, loss and sacrifice. The actors did a great job and I was glad I did some research on North Korea beforehand. My spouse and I would see this again.
