Repo: The Genetic Opera screens April 18 at the Coolidge
Two weekends ago, I went to the Coolidge to see the midnight screening of Repo: The Genetic Opera,
the 2008 rock musical set in a decadent, surgery-obsessed dystopia. I
should have known something was amiss right away when, before the movie
started, a dude dressed in what appeared to be a conductor’s outfit
stood up and commenced screaming film quotes until the audience gave
him a satisfactory callback response.
