If you've been waiting for something to combine your love of J-Pop, Broadway musicals, and fast scrolling arrows, you're in luck. Les Freres Corbusier have announced plans to bring a loose adaptation of Konami's Dance Dance Revolution to the stage.
In a futuristic Orwellian society where dancing is illegal, a group of local street toughs harbor no hope of overthrowing the fascistic no-fun government - until a mysterious dance prophet named Moonbeam Funk arrives.
Loosely based on the wildly popular videogame, Dance Dance Revolution is like Footloose set in the future - but kind of scarier, and with 40 really attractive, barely clothed young actors and buckets of free beer.
Man, legitimate theatre just goes over my head. The show is set to feature Van Hansis, who stars as the gay teen Luke Snyder on the daytime soap As The World Turns. Les Freres Corbusier aren't strangers to ... unorthodox themes, previously staging the semi-annual A Very Merry Unauthorized Children's Scientology Pageant and Heddatron, a play based on Henrik Ibsen's Hedda Gabler featuring robots in half the roles.
The show is running from December 3 to December 20 at the Ohio Theater in New York City. Tickets are $18.00 for general admission and you can buy them online now.
