Do you like good ol’ midnight movies? Do cult classics like The Rocky Horror Picture Show hold a dark place in your heart? Then you should scope out your neighborhood theater for a special screening of Repo: The Genetic Opera!
I just caught a midnight screening yesterday at the Coolidge Corner Theater in Brookline, MA. Big ups to Nikki and her kewl cats for finding out about the shows! I recommend catching it in a theater. You really do need the big screen to properly take in the deliciously dark tale in this rock opera.
For those of you not in the know, here’s a little insight. The story revolves around two families tied to one another in a world gone cosmetic – surgery that is. A mass epidemic causes an onslaught of infected organs. The solution? GeneCo. A family run business with the organs you need and a killer financing program.
If you haven’t heard anything about this production, you may be a little surprised by some of the actors contributing to this project. Among some of the stars are Alexa Vega, best known for her involvement in the Spy Kids movies. Also among the familiar faces are Paul Sorvino, Sarah Brightman and Paris Hilton – yes, that Paris Hilton. But wait, there’s more. Fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer television series will be particularly excited to see Anthony Stewart Head!
If you are anywhere within the Brookline, MA area, check out one of the remaining midnight screenings @ the Coolidge Corner Theater 3/28, 4/4 & 4/18. Visit their website.
