THEY SHOULD ALL BE DESTROYED (A JURASSIC PARK PLAY)

So, I went to the Rotunda last Thursday night and saw “Jurassic Park”. Since then I’ve been wondering what I was going to say about it besides awesome.

People have been throwing the prefix “meta” (meaning something that is about itself, or an abstraction from another concept. We couldn’t really understand a parody-play on Jurassic Park without there first being a movie, we couldn’t have the movie without the book. . . etc.) around pretty often lately because it makes sense to.This play was mega meta but also really funny with cool costumes. It was also educational, in an alternative arts space way, because Wham City is a group of “kids” (used to be a warehouse space but I thought they got evicted?) who live and work in Baltimore. Very notable among them is the musician Dan Deacon who wrote a song called “Wham City“. I’ve heard good things about their plays, which are often stage adaptions of movies, the buzz was correct.

Here are some photographs of the event, mixed with some screen shots from the actual movie:
