Description

They are back! Those sludge-monsters from the planet Zygon are invading Houston again, but this time they are armed with an even more dangerous weapon: original artwork by the incomparable Tim Doyle.

In fall 2007, Houstonians had a chance to see The Intergalactic Nemesis, the story of Pulitzer-winner Molly Sloan and her intrepid assistant Timmy Mendez in the form of a radio drama, but now… imagine 1,250 hand-drawn full-color action-packed images projected one-by-one onto a huge screen, three actors voicing dozens of characters and one sound engineer creating hundreds of sound effects before your very eyes! Imagine being swept away by the incredible original music and a story that transports you from Rumania to Scotland to Tunis to the far reaches of outer space!  The stage version of The Intergalactic Nemesis projects the comic book artwork panel-by-panel while three actors perform the voices, one foley artist creates the sound effects, and one keyboardist plays the score, all live.
