Die Hard: The Movie, The Play
Yippee-ki-yay, theatre fans.
August 28, 2019
First, it turned Speed into a play. Then, it gave Titanic the same treatment. Now, Act/React is saying "yippee-ki-yay" to the mother of all Christmas-set action films. Break out the white singlets, get festive and prepare to spend plenty of time watching someone crawl around in vents, because Die Hard is coming to the stage, too.
This comedic theatre performance will transform the Brisbane Powerhouse's Turbine Platform into Los Angeles' Nakatomi Plaza, let European terrorist Hans Gruber do his worst and task New York cop John McClane with saving the day — with help from the dad from 80s and 90s sitcom Family Matters.
Throw in more than a few one-liners, incredibly low-fi special effects and an all-round comic atmosphere, and that's Die Hard: The Movie, The Play, which'll unleash its mayhem from Thursday, November 21 to Sunday, December 1. Playing as part of this year's Wonderland festival, this is one hijacking you'll want to witness.
