Fanatical

Presented by American Demigods
Book by Reina Hardy, Music and Lyrics by Matt Board


Angel 8" is a cult science fiction TV show. It's also a lifestyle. To the fans gathered at the first-ever "Angel 8" convention, it's EVERYTHING. But when the unthinkable happens during show creator Scott Furnish's long-awaited keynote address, this group of lovable misfits must band together to prove that no power in the 'verse can keep a story from its fans.

"A cast of characters that are all-too-likeable and all-too-real ....Fanatical has a brain, a heart, and a finger on the pulse of nerd passion and fandom.... these are canny writers - and a show - with a future."
-Broadwayworld.com

"Director Kate Staiger’s well-cast ensemble throws themselves at the material with total commitment... Board does a terrific job of creating music and lyrics."
-New City

"It was one of the best plays I have ever seen. It was funny. It was well-written. It had an awesome plot line. The songs were so well-written and clever and fun. "
-Ada Grey Reviews for You (Chicago's favorite ten-year-old theatre critic)

"...a love letter to fans. I want Wil Wheaton to see this show. I want Nathan Fillion to see this show. I wish it had a bigger space, a longer run, and a larger ensemble"
-Geek Girl Chicago

"The only flaw in Fanatical is that it leaves us wanting more."
-The Reader
