Robot Monster–The Musical is adapted from the infamous 1953 cult movie classic Robot Monster, in which an anxiety-ridden space gorilla is sent to destroy the human race. Hailed as one of the greatest bad movies in film history, it also has a charming and unpretentious sincerity that feels quite appealing in our frenetic times. Robot Monster–The Musical boasts 16 brand new songs (from swing and Broadway to Philip Glass) … plus a singing gorilla!

A great actor is generous. They're in tune with themselves physically and emotionally. They come to terms with nerves, and work with it. They are present on stage, and they give themselves completely to the other actors, who are able to give back to them. There is give and take. The story is told, and there is total connection with the audience.
