The Intergalactic Nemesis.  Sounds like something from the future, but it's not.  It's what creator Jason Neulander calls a mash-up of 1930's radio drama and classic comic book action into one stage performance.

The Kings Singers are a vocal ensemble with a range that crosses boundaries….both stylistically and geographically.  In fact, during the past year, the six-member group has performed in over three dozen countries. They sing the work of contemporary composers, long-established classics and even specially-commissioned pieces.  Kings Singers, Jonathan Howard and Paul Phoenix, spoke with John Hingsbergen about the group itself and Friday night’s performance of “Travel Songs” at Centre College’s Norton Center for the Arts.
