I don’t like pulp in my orange juice. If I wanted pulp, I would eat an orange. In my sf? Yeah, I like a little pulpy goodness, and if there’s a hint of really smart silliness, well, all the better. This was exactly what I got with No Tea Productions’s Space Captain, Captain of Space at New York’s Kraine Theatre this August. An homage to pulp science fiction, early sf movie serials, and a touch of B movies, the production involved a blend of pre-recorded film, live action, and puppets. No Tea Productions created a fun, clever, innovative parody emerging from the genetic goo of old school Flash Gordon, Duck Dodgers, and Fraiser.
