Love in the Time of Lasers
Ah, young love – the awkward pauses, the nervous laughter, the sweaty palms, the laser-shooting dinosaurs … Oh, right. That’s not normal.
BooTown presents Love in the Time of Lasers, a 21st century romance with a sci-fi twist. (See: dinosaurs, lasers.) The production employs table-top puppets, stop-motion animation and a number of puppetry techniques to tell the story of a couple’s quest to fall (and stay) in love.
Directed by BooTown Co-Artistic Director Lindsay Burleson, conceived and written with Andrew Keil of NYC.
The show will be preceded by an original puppet piece, Sitcom, by BooTown friend Joe Wozny. Sitcom is about an ordinary couple forced to confront the parts and roles they’ve played. (P.S. The show is built out of recycled bar materials. Everyone’s drunk.)
The production runs January 25 through February 9 at Shoparama (Main and Winbern), 14 Pews, and Rudyard’s British Pub. Tickets are pay-what-you-can and can be purchased at the door. Only Two Shows Left!
