Here’s a little plug for my boss, Richard Elfman. It looks like Forbidden Zone just grew another pair of legs.
From the Press Release
FZ6D.com has gone live. FZ6D is the abbreviation of the title Forbidden Zone: LIVE in the 6th Dimension and http://www.FZ6D.com is now the home of production blogs, audition announcements, adjunct artwork and show previews and will soon feature showtimes and ticketing for the new musical entertainment that brings to the stage the wild and implacable creations of Richard Elfman and the mindbending rollercoaster of a score from Danny Elfman.
The website launched with a word or two from director Scott Leggett, the origins of the production as recalled by author/producer Michael Holmes, and a look at staging the score with music producer Marz Richards. The first batch of new artwork from the production is a risque sing-along comic book set to the tune of Minnie the Moocher that can be procured at current screenings of the cult classic film Forbidden Zone in select cities and some of the best comic book retailers in North America.
The most recent screening of the film took place on March 20th at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, NY as part of the high profile Tim Burton retrospective. Agents of King Fausto’s zombie army were seen distributing collectible mini-comics to the assembled throng. This event happily coincided with the commencement of casting and rehearsals for Forbidden Zone: LIVE in the 6th Dimension.
Auditions for the show were held in early March in Hollywood, CA. After much deliberation, the zombie army has been assembled and goes into basic training this week. The cast list is now posted at http://www.FZ6D.com.

He gave me a color version of his film on DVD. I have yet to watch it. I guess that makes me a bad employee. 🙁
