I want us all to remember how fucking awesome it was to see Jurassic Park for the first time, director Donna Sellinger recalls producer Jared Paolini saying when they were planning Wham Citys theater production of Jurassic Park. But how can this little company possibly re-create stage versions of immense and scary dinosaurs? Maybe with a fucked-up dance and some strobe lights, she says. What Wham City lacks in Spielberg-size cash, they more than make up for through their passion for this movie: Theyve constructed a T. rex, a dilophosaur, a brontosaurus, a velociraptor (which the actors will be wearing), cardboard jeeps and palm trees, and paper Doritos. Sellinger adds that this script fleshes out the sexual undertones that existed in the movie . . . so maybe in this version Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum will let their lizard brains take over?
