Bootown presents: Love in the Time of Lasers

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!

Devin Finch takes over Fitzgeralds on Wednesdays as new comedian spotlight begins

We asked Devin Finch on a Tuesday night after seeing that he was recently hospitalized for his box wine obsession, when we could video one of his next Stand up performances to which he replied, “Fuck it, I’ll do it tomorrow.” The typical night on Wednesdays at Fitzgeralds now that Robert Ellis western night has moved on to greater pastures is an open mic series, curated by a mustache man named John Mills-McCoin  where local talent is given their 10 minutes of fame. Here is Devin Finches 10 minutes!

It is third go at standup and I know we want more. Devin Finch’s spotlight has come after his comics have been featured on Vice, and after producing a very addicting youtube show, titled Prime Time Bitch and Tupperware Party. Stars of the show include his mother, his brother, and a few lady friends. Previews of his latest artwork and comics can be seen on his blog of course at devinfinch.com
