THE VIDEO GAMES, is a parody of the popular book/movie series The Hunger Games. The tributes participating in the Battle to the Death have been substituted for video game characters from all the popular video game franchises. Princess Zelda, Queen of The Console, is celebrating the 64th Annual Video Games and needs the audience’s assistance (through social media) to ensure that this year’s Games are bigger, badder, and bloodier than the year before! By voting for their favorite characters, the audience will to alter the course of events throughout the performance. It’s a different show every night as iconic pixelated heroes and villains, such as Donkey Kong, Lara Croft, the Master Chief, and more, compete to win the coveted title of Player One.

Nov. 19th, 2016 The Video Games opened Off-Broadway at the Elektra Theatre and closed Off-Broadway May 13th, 2017.

We started at the Hollywood Fringe Festival and are happy to make our return with the completed show! If you’ve saw it in 2015, you will want to see it again!
