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.
