WEST COAST PREMIERE! This multimedia performance art piece tells the story of famed Japanese animator Osamu Tezuka and Astro Boy, his most famous character. This West Coast Premiere features interactive video, live drawing and stylized movement. It’s a whimsical, retro sci-fi visual extravaganza that examines post-WWII fascination with technology and destruction, and the relationship between creation and creator.

"...a scintillating, invention-packed tour de force of visual wit, breathtaking acrobatic performance and sumptuous, seamlessly integrated, multimedia production design... poignantly whimsical and critically savvy... a kind of high-wire — and highly polished — vaudevillian pastiche. GO!" -Bill Raden, L.A. Weekly

"RECOMMENDED / TOP TEN ...spectacular... brilliantly creative... dazzling... delightful." -Terry Morgan, Stage Raw

"...incredibly inventive... totally unique and truly spectacular... a matchless 70-minute thrill ride..." -Travis Michael Holder, Arts in L.A.

"...mind-boggling... certain to be one of the summer’s most gigantic hits... You can expect to see lines around the corner for weeks and weeks to come as theater buffs, graphic novel lovers, manga fanatics, and Astro Boy fans far and near await this most thrilling of summer theatrical treats." -Steven Stanley, StageSceneLA
