Natsu Onoda Power presents new play
Astro Boy and the God of Comics is a new play created by Natsu Onoda Power, Georgetown Theater Professor and Engelhard Faculty Fellow, now playing at the Studio Theater in D.C. The play is based on Professor Power’s book God of Comics: Osamu Tezuka and the Creation of Post-World War II Manga (2009). Astro Boy is a high-energy performance piece that incorporates acting, drawing, puppetry, and media to tell the story of the famous Japanese character and his originator, Osamu Tezuka.
Professor Power is a long-time Faculty Fellow whose Engelhard course this semester, “Spectacle of Eating,” is based on her previous theater piece, The Omnivore’s Dilemma.
