A Techno-pop Comedy Adventure!
StageWorks Ink launched onto the scene in 2013 with "Varsity Cheerleader Werewolves LIVE From Outer Space" and "The Adventures of Dex Dixon: Paranormal Dick." In 2014 we have presented "Flash Ah-Ahhh!!" to sold out houses. All three shows have been wonderfully received by critics and audiences alike.
For our second show of 2014, we present "Electric Dreams," a comedic musical fantasy romantic thriller filled with amazing music from 1984! This show features a collection of awesome hits you've never heard from artists like The Culture Club, Heaven 17, Philip Oakley and The Human League, UB40, Jeff Lynne of ELO and Giorgio Moroder of Daft Punk.
We will be performing these numbers with a live band and plenty of '80s flash and dazzle!
"This piece has been on my 'to-do' list for a long time," said StageWorks' Artistic Director Steve Coker. " A piece that, when presented in 1984, was overlooked and underrated. An '80s version of "Cyrano" with a bit o' "Little Shop of Horrors" thrown in for good measure. It's a bizarre love triangle between a boy, a girl, and a personal computer that has come to life and wants the girl for himself."
When introverted architect Miles buys a personal computer to help organize his life, he gets far more than advertised. After a bottle of champagne is spilled on the machine, "Edgar" is inadvertently brought to life. To complicate things further, Miles' new neighbor, a beautiful cellist named Madeline, awakens Edgar's romantic circuits through her music, causing Edgar to begin composing songs for her - songs that the love struck Miles claims as his own in order to woo her. Filled with betrayal and unrequited feelings of love he cannot understand, Edgar wages war on Miles in an attempt to expose the truth and claim Madeline for itself!
