Friday, April 8-Saturday, April 9

In Mary Shelley's sci-fi classic, Frankenstein, the titular character builds a man from corpse parts, only to recoil in horror at his creation. It begs the question of whether mankind is morally prepared to create sentient life. In The Future Soon: A Sci-Fi Musical, roboticists and computer programmers must finish what they started—a zombie apocalypse—while untangling their convoluted romantic lives, begging the question of whether geek culture is ready for the stage. Based on the tunes of nerdy programmer-turned-Internet-rock-star Jonathan Coulton, The Future Soon is a Broadway-style musical for the few, the proud, the geeky.
