SAN DIEGO – Comic-Con International (Comic-Con) is proud to present the San
Diego premier of the Too Much Coffee Man Opera at the Horton Grand Theater
(Espresso Theater) July 27 & 28, 2007.
The brainchild of artist/writer Shannon Wheeler, Too Much Coffee
Man first appeared as a self-published strip back in the early 1990¹s. Since
that time his creation has enjoyed life as a single strip in comic books,
alternative newspapers and a series of Graphic Novels, as well as an
incarnation as a magazine dedicated to comics, and interviews.
The opera, created by Wheeler and based on his famous comic
character, chronicles the tragedy when Too Much Coffee Man, a simple,
average cup o¹joe, falls for his caffeine-supplying barista. Also vying for
her attention is Espresso Guy. Can all this coffee peacefully co-exist in
the already-twitchy world of relationships?
Too Much Coffee Man Opera will play at the Horton Grand Theater,
444 Fourth Avenue in San Diego. The theater is (appropriately) also home to
the long running favorite Triple Espresso. Performances of Too Much Coffee
Man Opera will coincide with Comic-Con, the largest comic book and popular
arts convention in the United States.
Those with a Comic-Con badge will be able to see the show free
(space permitting) on Friday, July 27 at 3:00pm, Saturday, July 28 at
1:30pm., and 11:00pm. Tickets for the Comic-Con performances will be
available at Shannon Wheeler¹s booth (#2200) and at the Comic-Con booth
(#2045) located at Comic-Con inside the San Diego Convention Center.
Community performances open to the public will be held on
Friday, July 27 at 4:30pm and 11:00pm. Tickets for those performances are
available now through TICKETMASTER and, should any remain, at the theater
before performances. Show is general seating and tickets are $25.00 each.
