Flying saucers over London! Flying saucers over Hollywood! Flying saucers over Washington, DC! It's a panic! It's a riot! It's the end of the world! It's PLAN NINE FROM OUTER SPACE! Now ALIVE ON STAGE, as brought to you by the miserable souls who previously mangled such great Ed Wood B-Movie epics as Orgy of the Dead, The Sinister Urge!, and The Fugitive Girls! Once again, the hordes of DMT are unleashed upon the poor, unsuspecting corpse of the late, great, lamented Edward D. Wood, Jr, hailed universally as the Worst Filmmaker of All Time, and the results are a demolition derby of comedy, a maelstrom of horror, a delicious, devious concoction sure to freeze you to the funny bone!
On a windswept Autumn night, a trio of flying saucers descends on a sleepy suburban outpost of Los Angeles, its nefarious power rays dragging the lifeless husks of the recently dead out from their graves, desecrating their undead bodies by making them into shambling zombie thugs ready to do the bidding of their extraterrestrial masters! Only Lt. Matt Carson and his faithful assistant Randy Stone can prevent the armies of the beyond from overtaking Hollywood... and then the world! SEE Zombies on the loose! SEE a beautiful young newlywed wrenched from her inner sanctum by the mouldering arms of evil! SEE fried chicken and Dr. Pepper! SEE bumbling aliens and rockribbed military men! SEE the secret Pentagon base where UFOs are discussed and secretly examined! SEE about one hour and fifty minutes of random crap! SEE Frank Cwiklik, director of the recent smash cult hit Two Gentlemen of Lebowski, as he shamelessly cashes in his reputation as a purveyor of theatrical gimcrackery and presents the Halloween extravaganza of a lifetime!
Joining Mr. Cwiklik in this ill-advised endeavour are faces you may recognize from past DMT shows, back this time to finish up their community service requirement and once again offer their talents out of pity for DMT's sad plight. PETER SCHUYLER, who graced the stage in DMT's recent Titus Andronicus, is Lt. Matt Carson, ready with a gun for the bad guys and a witty retort for his stalwart companions; STEWART URIST, who won audience's hearts as Sir Donald in Two Gentlemen of Lebowski, is Randy Stone, erstrwhile cop on the move and on the groove; CRAIG KELTON PETERSON and ANN BREITBACH, both of Titus Andronicus fame, return as the bickering and bumbling aliens attempting to conquer our puny planet; BOB LAINE, originator of the role of Sir Walter of Poland in the infamous Two Gentlemen of Lebowski, and whose compelling turn in Bitch Macbeth earned him four-star notices, is the shambling Inspector Clay, aided and abetted by Titus Andronicus' KRISTIN WOODBURN as the sexy, deadly, unstoppable Zombina; ALEXANDRA COHEN-SPIEGLER, also of Bitch Macbeth fame, is the lovely damsel-not-so-much in distress Paula Trent; and DOUGLAS MACKRELL, who stole the show every night in The Wild, Wild Women of Wakky-Nunu, is our humble narrator, guiding us deftly through the wilds and wonders of Ed Wood's miraculous mindscapes. These erstwhile DMT veterans are joined by a number of faces new to the DMTheatrics stages, including CEDRIC JONES as the excitable and frickin' fabulous Commander Bunny, plus BRYAN A. MARSHALL, VICTORIA MILLER, LINDSEY CARTER-- and many more yet to be tricked into appearing in this godforsaken mess.
