Ride The Cyclone: The Video Game!
Ride The Cyclone is quickly becoming a Canadian indie theatre legend. Exploding onto the Toronto stage at SummerWorks, it is already selling out houses at Theatre Passe Muraille with a show that opened on Monday night with more buzz than any indie-produced musical in recent memory.
Cyclone creator Atomic Vaudeville is engaged in a robust social media strategy with a convincing YouTube Trailer, Storify for production-related tweets, a recent live twitter chat with the cast via #AskTheCyclone, and apparently their own video game.
Also worth noting is that the show was first performed in Toronto via the infamous Heritage funding earmarked specifically for national companies that would be cut by the Harper Government six months later.
Looking forward to sharing the theatre with Ride The Cyclone near the end of its run, when Jesus Chrysler will be playing concurrently in the Theatre Passe Muraille backspace .
