10 Reasons Why You Don’t Want to Miss Teh Internet is Serious Business

Our production of Tim Price’s Teh Internet Is Serious Business, directed by Wayne Rawley, is NOW PLAYING through October 6. If you are looking for a reason to see the show, here are 10 to get you READY TO GO!


1.The set is fucking INSANE.

 

Tristan Roberson has entirely outdone himself with the biggest set in WET’s history. The mammoth set includes multi-level playing spaces, a 20-foot ladder, oh and don’t forget the hundreds upon hundreds of LED lights he has placed in the floor! Click the play button above to see the truly fucking MAGICAL floor!

2. The Seattle Times says “Teh Internet is packed with great performances and great moments…

…too many to recount here — you’ll have to see the work to fully appreciate it.” We are not trolling you, they really said that. Read the full review here.

3. Do you know who Alyza Delpan-Monley is?

If not, get your ass down to the theatre and see the way she is changing the face of movement in theatre in Seattle. Alyza choreographed the show with everything from dance numbers to a physicalizing of what coding looks like sans computers. Or, as The Stranger so eloquently put it, “to dramatize the act of hacking, the actors approach lit-up squares onstage and pantomime the act of taping up an invisible cardboard box while shouting programming language.” LOL. Y U NO UNDERSTAND PLAY?! Don’t you know that being cheeky is our brand?

4. It wouldn’t be a play about the internet without MEMES!!!

Check out this video for a sneak peek at some classic favorites such as Anxiety Cat and Advice Dog.

5.The CAST! A bunch of hard working talented trolls.

 

And the biggest cast WET has ever had.

6. You should def come because I Herd U Like Mudkips!

7. Costumes!!

Jenn Oaster is a costume goddess serving up 2011 realness with her amazing design. The play has over 25 characters and the attention to detail is kIlLeR.

8. You 4 sure do not want to miss 15 Nerf guns being fired at once.

9. It’s the first time Jay Irwin has ever liked anything we have done! 😉

On his Broadway World review he even says, “I give WET’s Teh Internet is Serious Business a YAY with plenty of LULZ. And we can all use more LULZ, just hopefully not at the expense of others.”
