Book/ Music/ Lyrics
Andrew Barret Cox
Our main characters Sean and Laura, a brother and sister leaving for college, stumble across their old 90’s memorabilia in their attic, only to accidentally activate an ancient device that begins to merge the worlds of reality and fiction. As Pokémon characters fill our world and become more corrupted and human, it is up to our heroes to save both dimensions from the end of the universe! On their way, they run into crazy obstacles and hilarious happenings that will hopefully have you holding your kidneys for dear LIFE!
“Pokémon: The 90’s Rock Show” isn’t all about swearing, vagina jokes, random outbursts and rock music, however. Beneath it all, many important themes arise from the humor. As the Pokémon are humorously attacked by the Clestforo Baptist Church (Westboro Baptist Church’s Un-Lawsuit Equivalent), things begin to hit home as they start to pick on James, a member of Team Rocket. We are reminded how insane this world can be, and how unjust and unequal the world still truly is. At the end of the show, we are reminded to be ourselves and never let go of our childhood and sense of youth. Although the show is written for children of the 90’s and late 80’s, everyone can enjoy its music, dance, humor, and hopefully its messages.
