I’m sure you remember all the webseries called Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog written by Maurissa Tancharoen, Jed, Zack and Joss Whedon which was released before San Diego Comic Con in 2008.
It starred Neil Patrick Harris (Doogie Howser M.D., How I met your mother), Nathan Fillion (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Castle) and last but not least Felicia Day as Penny (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, The Guild, Dragon Age Redemption, Eurika).
Andy Lowe thought 2 years ago that it might be a nice idea to adapt the webseries into a professional, but still fan based live stage play here in San Diego during this years Comic Con. And so he did with musical arrangements by Brian Hammond.
The lead role for Penny was cast with local Singer-Songwriter Jane Lui. It’s her first acting role, but she says she really feels comfortable on stage, because It’s a natural place for her to be.
There are several shows to come at the Tenth Avenue Theatre in San Diego till July 30th 2011. It’s located within walking distance from the Gaslamp district and the Convention Centre and tickets are still available either through Brown Paper Tickets or at the door.
