“Something’s rotten in the state of Eternia. The king is dead, and it’s up to Prince Adam to seek justice or lose the figure of action! It’s Shakespeare meets Saturday morning in a brand new iambic pentameter adventure that begs the question; “To He, or not to He?” In the end, “He-Manlet” is a very personal story about being true to one’s self and the secrets we keep. It’s about the roles we find ourselves in, and the difficulty of breaking those molds. It’s about good versus evil and standing up against a world gone mad. It’s about tragedy and loss and Shakespeare’s finest play. But mostly it’s about a sweet ass Saturday morning cartoon from the 80’s that ended every episode with a lesson about being a better person.”
