What If Jurassic Park Was a Musical?

Over the summer, the Old Murder House Theatre troupe toured the country with a cheesy musical adaptation of Michael Crichton‘s Jurassic Park. We’ve embedded a video about the Jurassic Live: Dino Action Show above–what do you think?

Using cardboard boxes, papier-mâché and some simple costumes, the actors recreated scenes from the novel and the classic film by Steven Spielberg. Here’s more about the production:

The latest production from Old Murder House Theatre (producers of ALIENS ON ICE!), this show is the latest in a long line of elaborate parodies that drag Hollywood blockbusters down kicking and screaming to a cardboard and duct-tape scale. The results — which WIRED Magazine called “lo-fi love notes” — are simultaneously homage and satire, and have been called a “miracle of live performance” by Movies.com and “unparalleled chaos” by io9. We’re not sure which we’re more proud of, but after years of single-night events and after-the-fact internet buzz, this will be the first time Old Murder House hits the road and delights audiences nationwide!
