A Gilbert Sullivan Christmas Carol – 1491249
07-02-15 – Albany, NY>Buffalo, NY – A Christmas Carol is one of the most resonant stories ever written in the English language, and its by-now-mythic tale of loss and redemption is to some degree affecting in every version ever done, from Mickey Mouse or the Muppets to the original book and, of course, in innumerable stage versions.
This play is no powerful psychodrama, but rather a light-hearted blending of two forms of Victorian storytelling which I love. Not a parody or a tongue-in-cheek knockoff, it’s a festive holiday show with all the drama of the Dickens original and all the buoyant spirit of Gilbert & Sullivan — an excuse for a jolly old Christmas party in the best Victorian fashion.
After all, if there’s one thing that Dickens stood for, and that Gilbert & Sullivan embodied, it’s good, clean fun. Merry Christmas, everybody!” — Project Type: Live Event

When settlers came upon the land and ran off the original inhabitants in order to colonize, the originals placed a curse upon the town that it be forever overrun with evil, in hopes that the town wouldn’t survive. A priest and several others of power put a protection “bubble” over the town to keep evil to a minimum if not out completely. But the bubble has been wearing thin over time and Koko’s “rebirth” causes an anomaly, ripping a hole in it, allowing the dark forces entry. A semi-dark, semi-camp story with lots of blood, foul language, etc. Koko Blayze: Undead Killer is unlike anything you’ve seen before: part live action web series, part comic book.
