DESCRIPTION

Winner! Best Fringe Festival Musical
Winner! Best of Fringe – Extensions

Extended again! Limited Run begins Sept. 6!
Tix at: http://colorandlighttheatre.org/tickets/

The Pokemusical is a lovingly satirical exploration of the world of pocket monsters! The brainchild of two Baldwin Wallace University students, the Pokemon adventure of a lifetime is now being brought to life upon the stage! Join Ash, Misty, Brock, Pikachu, and the rest of the crew from the original games and anime, and prepare to be hit with a wave of nostalgia! With an original book and lyrics by Alex Syiek, plus brand new music by Andrew L. Cooper, the Pokemusical is gearing up to be released from the Pokeball, this time with song and dance in tow.

LAist says: “This is The Pokémusical’s time and place, and The Pokémusical (of all things) just might be the show we end up remembering the 2013 Fringe Festival by.”

Broadway World says: “Vibrant characters, smart writing, and even smarter direction make this musical much more than it appears at first glance. It pays tribute to its Pokémon source material in the best way possible and takes the audience on a journey it will never forget.”

Geeks Out says: “Translating a classic anime series with a cult-like following into a live action musical is a feat that could have easily gone awry. The cheesy campy melodrama of Japanese animation seems like it would impossible for humans to perform (without looking ridiculous). The actors of The Pokémusical proved that it could not only be done, but done well.”

Curvewire says: “An absurd delight. You don’t have to be a Pokemon fan to enjoy it, but if you happen to be one, you’ll think you’ve died and gone to heaven.”

The Dogs of War! by LA Playwright Domine

A 1849 m 9289107

A modern tale of gang warfare & romantic intrigue. Imaginative language creates a mysterious & strange reality. The narrative unfolds as continuously evolving waves of rhyme in rap poetry weave their way through this contemporary urban drama.
