En route to its historical trip to the year 802,701, H.G. Wells’s Time Machine is making a stop in Hollywood.
For the first time ever, however, fans of H.G. Wells will be able experience the work live!
Adapted to the stage by Julian Bane (Lead/Producer) and Phil Abatecola (Writer/Director), “The Time Machine” promises to transport audiences into the future where they will encounter a new world, populated by creatures who are at once both strange and strangely familiar.
“We’ve created an experience that will take theatre goers through multiple periods and settings in one fantastic evening,” says Bane. “This independent show is visually inspiring and experientially entertaining.
While widely acknowledged as an influential literary work, “The Time Machine” has never before been adapted for the Los Angeles stage because in general theater producers tend to shy away from the sci fi genre. “There’s this hesitation that a stage production could never live up to the visual imagery of a sci fi novel, yet the world of theatre is filled with successful adaptations of fables and fantasies,” notes Bane.
If someone goes to this, I’d be interested to know your impressions.
