Well, uh, this is something. Off-Broadway theatre group Ars Nova has announced a series called The Wii Plays. It’ll run ten shows February 1-12, and each show will feature 12 short plays based on Wii games with a live band playing background. Here’s the list of games/plays:

Wii Tennis by Molly Smith Metzler, directed by Lila Neugebauer
Barbie as the Island Princess by Tasha Gordon-Solmon, directed by Lila Neugebauer
Let’s Tap by Janine Nabers, directed by Portia Krieger
Marvel Superhero Squad by Chad Beckim, directed by Stephen Brackett
Buck Fever by Samuel D. Hunter, directed by Portia Krieger
Alien Monster Bowling League by Matthew Lopez, directed by Laura Savia
Tomb Raider: Anniversary by Kara Lee Corthron, directed by Laura Savia
Burger Island by Gregory Moss, directed by Portia Krieger
All Star Cheer Squad by Jenny Connell, directed by Laura Savia
Sword Play: Speed Slice by Kristoffer Diaz, directed by Lila Neugebauer
Bob the Builder: Festival of Fun by Amy Herzog, directed by Stephen Brackett
Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games by Joe Tracz, dir. by Stephen Brackett

You know what? I’m gonna say you should go to this if you live in New York. Knowing theatre types, I bet this’ll be a lot of fun. Buy tickets here. The performances will be at the Ars Nova Theatre in Manhattan.
