Production Description

Casting "Tom Mandelbrot Conquers the Big Bad World" a musical that tells the simple story of a supervillain in love. Producer's synopsis: "The tale centers on Tom Octavius Mandelbrot, a loveable slacker of a computer programmer who dreams of one day conquering all mankind. After successfully pitching his first video game, Tom finally has the incentive to start his life of crime, and, along with his trusty sidekick Robot Monkey Butler Brian Dennehy, sets out to rule the world and win the heart of his one true love, Laura Springfield. But, after kidnapping Tom Cruise in order to gain national attention, his plans go horribly awry, inadvertently causing the zombie apocalypse and causing Robot Monkeys to invade Earth and take over the world. Can Tom Mandelbrot save humanity from his own creations? Will he win the heart of his beloved Laura? Will Tom Cruise ever find love? Set to the whimsically morbid tunes of geek-rock god Jonathan Coulton, this musical seeks to tackle the age-old struggle of finding your place in the world and the wonderfully crazy experience of falling in love with a robot monkey."
