Boy Meets Girl. Girl Fixes Boy. Everyone Lives Happily...Right?
a graphic novel play by Katie May
Directed by Jon Tracy with artwork by Rob Dario
Manic Pixie Dream Girl is a darkly comic story about a struggling graphic novelist who falls in love with a mysteriously silent manic pixie dream girl, and what happens when she becomes more than just a character type. Told in the style of a comic book, this world premiere production directed by Jon Tracy, and featuring the art of Rob Dario, is a beer drinking, pop-culture referencing, punch in the theatrical gut. More Judd Apatow than William Shakespeare, more High Fidelity than Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf. Just don't expect capes (there aren't any capes).
