    Kotaku has a fantastic story today about the Ars Nova theatre company in New York, which is about to present a stage show called The Wii Plays, which will run from February 1-11th at the Ars Nova theatre on 511 West 54th Street, New York, with tickets costing $15. Here’s Ars Nova’s blurb about the show:

    “New York’s hottest emerging playwrights springboard off the wild titles of Nintendo Wii games to create a night of short plays with an arcade spin. Joined by a killer live band, it’s game night Ars Nova style!”

    Kotaku has managed to find the complete listing of all the games that the short plays have been based around, and it really does make the mind boggle! I, in particular, would love to see the play based on Mario & Sonic at the Winter Olympic Games!:

    • Barbie as the Island Princess by Tasha Gordon-Solmon, directed by Lila Neugebauer
