You Gotta Move: Synetic’s A Trip to the Moon and A Commedia Christmas Carol, reviewed

Georges Méliès’ "A Trip to the Moon," 1902.

Georges Méliès’ “A Trip to the Moon,” 1902.

I was a big admirer of writer/director/illustrator Natsu Onoda Power‘s Astro Boy and the God of Comics at Studio Theatre earlier this year, and also of Martin Scorcese‘s 2011 film Hugo, which was in part about pioneering filmmaker Georges Méliès. So I was excited to see Power’s new stage adaptation of Méliès’ most famous film, A Trip to the Moon — which I found promising but underdeveloped.

I review it in today’s Washington City Paper, along with a Faction of Fools’ A Commedia Christmas Carol.
