In January 2008, I directed a musical adaptation of the cult classic "Plan 9 From Outer Space: The Musical" through the ASG group "Not-A-Penny Productions at the university of Arkansas. I aimed to make the the show a tribute to the quirkiness of the movie while also creating a deconstructed musical, making fun of the archetypes found in American musical theater. The show premiered in March to sold out crowds every night and was very well received.
"Plan 9 From Outer Space: The Musical" was originally performed in 2003 at The Box Theater in Fort Worth, TX (http://theboxtheater.com). It was adapted for stage and directed by Michael Johnson. Original music created by Johnathon Brinkley, Damon Gay, and Michael Johnson.
