The IndieGoGo campaign:
We're taking the show on the road! Boogie of the Apes is the second in a series of hilarious productions lip-synced to vintage children’s records of famous comic book, TV, and movie franchises. This raucous send-up of the 1970s Planet of the Apes franchise lampoons, critiques, and ever-so-gently mocks the first four movies in less than an hour. Come see Taylor, Dr. Zira, Cornelius, Nova and many more apes, humans and mutants come full circle in their journey through time and space and, of course, boogie down a bit too. (Please note: no gorillas, orangutans or chimpanzees are harmed in this production.)
And now we're taking it to New York!
