Description

Frost and Fire, a new multimedia music theater production presented by Theatre Bethune, combines a variety of actors, dancers, and digital artists in a performance adaptation of novelist Ray Bradbury’s appropriately titled short story. The futuristic tale takes place in the year 5002 on a foreign planet where a sub-culture of humans rise to existence and are condemned to a life cycle of eight days. Main characters Sim and Lyte put their short existence in danger as they search for the secret to the society’s escape from their inevitable fate.

Their story is told through the words of Mr. Bradbury and the beautifully staged and choreographed sequences of director/choreographer Zina Bethune. Accompanied by the original score of composer Zeljko Marasovich, with the graphics and video artistry of Michael Masucci, and special video guest artists Michael York and Lee Meriwether, the production is an entryway to the “sublime” (LA Weekly).
