Space od­dity on­stage

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

If you’ve been wait­ing since 1972 for some ver­sion of David Bowie’s al­ter ego, Ziggy Stardust, that glam rocker with ex­trater­res­trial con­nec­tions, to com­mu­ni­cate with us Earth­lings in Santa Fe, then a new rock opera, Lov­ing the Alien, is prob­a­bly the an­swer to your prayers. Writ­ten and pro­duced by Billy Miles Brooke, Lov­ing the Alien takes its name from a track on Bowie’s 1984 al­bum, Tonight, and stars lo­cal nightlife fa­vorites Andy Primm, Bella Gi­gante, Rod Harrison, and Amanda Mor­ris in a story about Ziggy’s younger brother, Iggy, who has come to terra firma as the world’s first of­fi­cial alien vis­i­tor. He might have ne­far­i­ous in­ten­tions to en­slave the pop­u­lace, or he might just be look­ing for sex. The leather-and-lace-clad cast sings, dances, and prances through time and space on its way to cult sta­tus in the tra­di­tion of The Rocky Hor­ror Pic­ture Show and Hed­wig and the An­gry Inch. Lov­ing the Alien pre­mieres at Skylight (139 San Fran­cisco St.) on Thurs­day, Nov. 5, at 8 p.m. (Doors open at 7 p.m.) Ad­di­tional shows are Nov. 12 and Nov. 19. Tick­ets, $15-$45, are avail­able at­light­ — Jen­nifer Levin
