Natsu Onoda Power is one of the most dynamic and inventive directors working in the D.C. area. Her last performance piece, Astroboy and the God of Comics
, garnered awestruck praise from The Washington Post
for its manic energy and ingenious stagecraft. Turning from comics, Power now looks to George Melies' 1902 film A Trip to the Moon
for inspiration for her latest, and most inspiring, show. Power's whimsical adaptation trumps an already over-the-top original with appearances by astronauts, a moon princess, Soviet spacedogs and the mysterious, insect-like "Selenites." Be ready to gasp (if only in delight): This piece takes you to the stratospheric heights of an out-of-this-world imagination.
