New Manga Musical Written by Jerry Robinson Scheduled for July

Jerry Robinson, co-author of Manga comic Astra, has a musical play based on the comic that will be performed at the Warehouse Theatre from July 7-14 in Washington D.C. The feature is a tongue-in-cheek parody about Astra who is “a fearless, no-fuss woman who visits Earth for the first time, attempting to save her all-female planet from extinction. Her mission? To capture sperm. While discovering men for the first time on Earth, Astra also observes a confused world in the midst of a Cold War.”

Jerry is best known for his contributions to the Batman comic strip, was a past president of the NCS and was awarded the 2002 The Milton Caniff Lifetime Achievement Award given for a lifetime of outstanding and accomplished work.

There’s an interesting interview with Jerry published in 2002 on the Main Event web site regarding much of Jerry’s career.

You should come see this funny, entertaining show!
I play Queen Cosma, and am also doing some live cartooning during the show. The cast is extremely talented-you’ll have a blast!
