Just when we thought we'd seen everything, there now exists an actual, honest-to-god opera about the Internets.
From the combined creative genius of Ellen Warkentine and Andrew Pedroza, LOLPERA is "an epik opera about teh internets and the memeing of life... with a libretto created entirely from the captions of stupid cat pictures":
Call it 1984 set in a virtual litter box. Call it Brave New World with bad grammar. Just please, please, don't call it Cats.
According to Stage and Cinema's Sarah Ellis, "the LOLs echo far beyond the theater, and the catchy refrain 'Ceiling cat is watching you masturbte, masturbte' may just haunt your next online excursions."
LOLPERA's New York run begins August 11.
