Been a while since there’s been any Repo! news, yes? Well if you’re in the NYC area and looking for something to do this Saturday, July 10th, why not dress up and take in a musical?
The Wings Theatre Company will be hosting Repo: The Genetic Opera for a special one-night only screening and shadowcast performance by the Zydrate Enthusiasts Network (ZEN). This event is in celebration of the anniversary of Repo‘s NYC premiere as a stage play, held at this very same theatre, five year ago. Before the screening a pre-show celebration will feature a live presentation of The Necromerchants beginning at 11pm with REPO! beginning at midnight. ZEN welcomes stage and screen REPO! alumni CJ DeAngelus as well as actor Tony Perry, who appeared as The Repo Man in the NYC stage production held at Wings Theatre in 2005.
PRE-SHOW: The Necromerchants Debt is a ten-minute opera which was performed in Los Angeles by a twosome dubbed The Gallery. The Gallery was comprised of REPO! masterminds Terrance Zdunich and Darren Smith who later expanded this story into the movie we know as REPO! ZEN’s own talented musicians and performers, nicknamed “The Peanut Gallery,” will take to the stage and perform this REPO! precursor to kick off the evening.
Tickets will set you back $15 a pop, and you can check out Wings Theatre if you’re interested.
