Welcome back science fiction musical drama lovers!
Believe it or not, it is true citizens!
Gary Morgenstein, a critically acclaimed writer, entertainment expert, lover of all things scientific, has long been rumored to help earthling Mad Mel (Michael A. Green) and his waitress turned lover from Marradia, Roni (Sage Melcher) return to Earth in 2017.
An intense investigation into these rumored science (fiction) developments has been instituted to reveal the truth; that Mel, on our planet will get help from Roni via messages of music and love.
When the news began leaking from alleged sources at the White House in the United States, science fiction admirers across the planet became delighted that Gary has brought one of the Ancient Aliens (Roni) back to New York City in order to make love with Mel, AND ultimately save the Earth itself!
What is Roni and Mel’s marvelous mission? To help save the hapless humans from destruction by Roni’s own alien race known as the mischievious and often marauding Marradians!
Reliable sources at Area 51 indicate the facts; that a wormhole has been utilized to convey Roni to Mad Mel at the Midtown International Theater Festival in New York City THIS WEEK to share their message of freedom, love and music to defeat the malevolent Marradian’s seeking to dominate our fair planet.
A long time ago, in a galaxy far away, a group of Ancient Aliens named the Marradians came to Earth. Ironically, according to legends about the Ancient Aliens delineated in Gary’s new book “Ancient Aliens: Marradians and Anunnaki: Volume Two: Extraterrestrial Gods, Religions, and Mystical Practices” the inhabitants of the planet Marradia, 16.7 light years away from our planet, began their visits to Earth peacefully to help foster civilization on Earth.
Somewhere along the way, after helping human beings on Earth achieve great accomplishments for our race, something went horribly wrong as the Marradians became somewhat crazed, bent on the destruction of humanity.
Perhaps jealous of our advancements on Earth, it will undoubtedly require intervention by Mel (Michael A. Green (Mel), and the dulcet tones his love interest Roni (Sage Melcher) to change the minds of the invading Marradians.
Together with a talented ensemble cast appearing this week at the Midtown International Theater Festival, you as a citizen of Earth can learn how Mel plans to save Earth from the horrendous fate that fortunately awaits us all in New York City!
We include a recent interview with Gary below for your edification, and will be back with a complete review of this exciting entertainment event subsequent to their performances in New York at the fabulous festival!
