Michael T. Folie's "sci-fi-noir" plays Jesus Christ vs. Godzilla and Clone continue through the month of July under the umbrella title of Other Worlds at Aaah! Capella Theatre in North Hollywood.
Folie's full-length play The Adjustment premiered last year at North Coast Rep in San Diego. It later played to sold-out houses for six months when produced by Alliance Rep Co. in L.A. The playwright is a wellknown speech writer for such business executives as Steven T. Florio, president and CEO of Conde Nast Publications.
Jesus Christ Vs. Godzilla takes place in another dimension where duplicates of the famous dwell for as long as their fame lasts on earth. Clone is set in a future world where people are genetically engineered to live long, disease-free lives. Both plays are directed by Michael Cullen, a British transplant who worked at the BBC and directed many plays at the Lion's Head in London.
The Aaah! Capella Theatre is located at 5807 Lankershim Blvd. in NoHo. For tickets and information call (818) 986-4668.
