Big Dumb Buildings (Gregg Standridge and Brian Eads), author David Wilson-Burns, and actor/director John Burns join forces to create an original Podcast Musical. E-Vatar is a sci-fi love story set in a near, but dark future where the pandemic has taken the world in an unexpected turn. The vaccine has failed. Humanity has become quarantined into complete isolation, and has turned to E-Vatar; a new social technology, which allows a person to enter and experience the virus-ridden outside world as a highly advanced, miniature android. Taylen, a non-binary twenty-something, navigates the bizarre and obsessive world of E-Vatar society while attempting to retain their humanity and dignity. When romance sparks, Taylen faces unforeseen difficulties. Wilson-Burns weaves a rhythmically-driven script with the rock musical score of Standridge and Eads (Big Dumb Buildings) in a musical theatre, podcast, short series.It will be available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Podcast Addict, and on the E-Vatar Buzzsprout page.
