    Synopsis: 

    The original '60s-inspired rock musical follows the sci-fi adventures of two lost astronauts and their sensitive, under-appreciated robot who crash land on a mysterious planet of sexy, beautiful, powerful women. In this true original that boldly goes where no musical comedy has gone before, youth, lust, idealism, true love, revolution and even snack food triumph over warped authority.

    ‘Wild Women of Planet Wongo,’ a Musical Comedy With a Sci-Fi Bent

    Andy Webster

    June 23, 2015: Bushwick, in Brooklyn, as it inches closer to being devoured by Williamsburg, can still look otherworldly in its more remote precincts. How appropriate then to find the quaint musical cum dance party “Wild Women of Planet Wongo” there on a desolate block at Brooklyn Fire Proof. Not to be confused with the Z-movie “Wild Women of Wongo,” from 1958, this spoof more recalls the seminal sci-fi cheese-fest “Cat-Women of the Moon,” from 1953. So familiar are the conventions of such films that regardless of whether you’ve seen them, you sense what you’re going to get here. Start with a Wongotini (vodka, Midori, tequila and lime juice), offered in the lobby bar. (I didn’t partake, but the reviews were good.) On TV screens, footage of Khrushchev, Apollo missions and President John F. Kennedy set the mood. Pass through a star-spangled hallway into a room with a sound console and multiple monitors, and there — as you stand, and drink, and dance (if you want) — is where the show happens.
