It's A Video Game Theatre Festival!

Returning after a successful debut last year, Brooklyn's Brick Theatre will soon play host to another festival of plays and performance art based on video games.

The curtain goes up on July 9, with a range of shows including live machinima, a tour of Second Life (with the Kool-Aid man), a Mortal Kombat fight controlled by guitars and "Five Classic Video Games Adapted for the Stage".

There's also a ton of other stuff going on, like chiptunes parties and game installations. If you're in or around New York City next month, and want to read more about what's happening, you can hit up the Game Play festival's official site below.
