Intergalactic Nemesis Book Two: Robot Planet Rising

Posted on November 6, 2013 | 3:36pm

The Intergalactic Nemesis returns to Segerstrom Center for the Arts with Book Two: Robot Planet Rising in the Samueli Theater.  The sequel to last season’s hit show picks up two weeks after the end of book one with the adventures of Molly Sloan and Timmy Mendez.

The star of the show is the storytelling method in this visually striking performance.  Intergalactic Nemesis combines radio-style storytelling drama with over 1,000 comic book visuals.  The show takes the original artwork from the comic book and projects the images onto a two-story high video screen.  Three actors provide the voices for all of the characters; one performer creates all of the sound effects while a keyboardist provides the score.
