“A Musical About Star Wars” at Lied marks homecoming for creator

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – “A Musical About Star Wars” was first conceived in New York, where Michael D’Angora lives. But he wasn’t always a part of the big NYC theater scene. He was originally from Lincoln, a part of that admittedly smaller theater culture. Friday night’s performance combines the two.

Lincoln Calling weekend; Sun-less Trio Saturday; Thighmaster Sunday…

The calendar is looking mighty light this weekend. Lincoln Calling is in full swing (started yesterday, actually). To some degree, organizers have swayed away from indie in the line-up, though there are a few notables, including Las Cruxes, Jim Schroeder/Mesa Buoy, Plack Blague, Universe Contest, Dirt House, Marcey Yates & Xoboi and Conny Franko.

'Stupid,' 'a little bizarre,' 'very funny' — 'A Musical About Star Wars" coming to Lied Friday

Ask Michael D’Angora to describe “A Musical About Star Wars” and you’ll get an answer that you’d never expect to hear from a show’s producer. “It’s incredibly stupid,” D’Angora said. “It’s a little bizarre. It’s about these idiots who are huge Star Wars fans who want to produce a show about ‘Star Wars.’ Think like Bill and Ted or Wayne and Garth trying to do a ‘Star Wars’ musical.”

Still, why -- after thousands of movies have been made and millions of pieces (featuring jillions of words) have been published -- does creativity always seem to emerge through William Shakespeare?
