The long running hit show “The Video Games” is looking for replacements/swings for its Los Angeles production in Hollywood.
A parody of the popular book/movie series The Hunger Games. The tributes participating in the Battle to the Death have been substituted for video game characters from all the popular video game franchises. Ranging from Super Mario to Mass Effect, a selection of popular, iconic characters will compete to win the coveted title of “Player One.” From voting for their favorite character to saving them from certain death, the audience will be able to alter the course of events throughout the performance. Twelve different fighters, twelve possible winners; all depending on your vote. May the odds be ever in their favor.
“The Video Games” has been performed for two years, including a 6-month run Off-Broadway in New York City. Other notable performances include: Hollywood Fringe 2015, San Diego International Fringe Festival 2016, New York International Fringe Festival 2016, and a return to Hollywood Fringe Festival 2017, as well as a continuous tour as featured guests of various comic conventions across the country including: Nerd-Con, Long Beach Comic Con, Long Beach Comic Expo, Stan Lee’s Los Angeles Comic Con (Comikaze), Cos-losseum, LVL UP Expo (Las Vegas), New Jersey Comic Con, and more.
