Opening weekend of Twilight Zone: Live! presents…
…The Lonely, directed by Dean Merrmell, who directed the All Worlds Fair “documentary” (you remember those pictures of me in the bird hat?) and many, many other things that I wasn’t involved with. He has made some wonderful adaptations to the episodes that have really spoken to me, particularly as a woman, a feminist, and artificial lifeform empathizer. Oh, I play the robot.
The other episode, Mirror Image, is brought to you by the same people who did Dirty Dancing: Live! Lauren Davidson (perhaps you remember her as Penny and Vivian Pressman) will be directing this one. I’ve heard it’s very funny and super crude, and I’m just assuming it’s also hella creepy because it’s about doppelgangers in a mirror world and I’ve seen Star Trek, so I know what that means.
Also, if you enjoy looking at my cute boyfriend (I know I do!), you’ll especially like this weekend because he gets to be in both episodes.
