AVPSY Debuts at LeakyCon
July 16, 2012, 09:23 AM
One year ago today Team StarKid presented A Very StarKid Event at LeakyCon 2011. To say it was a highlight for a lot of our conference-goers is like saying that Hufflepuffs are just okay at finding things.
At this LeakyCon, they are determined to outdo themselves. We are thrilled to tell you that Team StarKid will present a staged reading of A Very Potter 3D: A Very Potter Senior Year at LeakyCon 2012!
This is the first and only time to see this show and it will include nearly every person who has ever appeared in a StarKid production. The show will feature a book by Matt Lang, Nick Lang, and Brian Holden.
Head over to LeakyCon.com for the full story!
A “reading”, but not an actual production? Is this because of time limitations, priorities of various cast members, or something to do with the recent kurfuffle with WB over an unauthorized production of AVPM? This is the next sequel that Starkid had been musing about for a while, right? Not just a revue or a special little show? Why not put on a full-bore production? If they’re exhausted after their recent tour or Holy Musical B@tman (understandable), why don’t they wait a bit and actually do the thing right? I understand that they wanted to do something exciting and unexpected for LeakyCon, but I don’t necessarily want to see them sitting in a row of chairs onstage (even if they’re in costume). They should have the whole deal, sets and props and lighting (a staged reading doesn’t even sound like it will involve music at all). And seeing the words “first and only time” makes me more than a little depressed, especially if the whole thing is just a watered-down version of the musical that could have been.
