For those who play video games, you know the story lines and interactive is an equivalent to actual theatre (for the most part).
Ars Nova takes it to the next level and presents "The Wii Plays" - a series of 8 minute plays that take Mario, Sonic, Bob the Builder, Barbie, and, of course, the Wii to the stage.
I had wish I had known about this sooner, but if you get the chance head onto Ars Nova before Saturday, February 12th. It's a good compromise for that nerd-minded significant other when you can't agree being treated to opera for Valentine's Day.
