What You'll Get
Though now commonplace, acting was condemned in colonial times as “public lying,” with offenders being yanked off the streets with novelty-sized shepherd’s crooks. Embrace vaudevillainy with today’s deal: for $19, you get one ticket for a seat in the parterre or orchestra section to “Intergalactic Nemesis: Book One—Target Earth”, a live-action graphic novel, at the Long Center on Tuesday, November 22, at 8 p.m. (up to a $44.50 value online, including ticketing fees). voucher holders will be assigned the best available seating upon redemption and should purchase together to be seated together.
An Austin original, live-action graphic novel The Intergalactic Nemesis debuted in 2010 before embarking on a world tour of more than 30 cities. More than 1,250 original images concocted by illustrator and printmaker Tim Doyle flood a large screen throughout the performance to immerse audiences in a story that combines historical fiction with otherworldly action. At the height of the Great Depression, sludge-monsters from the planet Zygon invade Earth with a nefarious plot to control the world and steal every pie from every windowsill, causing three voice actors to assume multiple roles as both humans and interstellar creatures. A live sound engineer captures the sounds of an alien takeover and 250-piece orchestra using musical instruments and makeshift percussion gadgets. The sleek surfaces and sweeping curves of the Long Center’s 2,300-seat Dell Hall supply a suitably futuristic environment for the sci-fi high jinks.
