Repo! The Genetic Opera is a 2008 United States rock opera-musical film directed by Darren Lynn Bousman. The film is based on a play written and composed by Darren Smith and Terrance Zdunich.
The film opened in a very limited release on November 7, 2008. Originally, it opened on seven screens in the United States cities of Pasadena; Chicago; Mobile; Charlotte; Kansas City; and Toronto and Ottawa in Canada. The film took in $3,250 per screen on its opening day. It also had a limited Canadian release, playing in Toronto from November 21-27, 2008. A 22-track soundtrack was released online on September 30, 2008, with an extended version containing 38 tracks released almost exclusively for download on February 20, 2009. The DVD and Blu-ray were released January 20, 2009.
To coincide with the film's release, Bousman, Smith, and Zdunich, as well as various cast members, did a touring version of the film. Principal cast and crew also did extensive Q&A sessions following each screening. Because of strong ticket sales, a second and third touring session were added, in addition to a British tour across four locations. A Repo! Road Show was announced on January 28 in 10 cities. This show will be similar to the Repo! Road Tour, except it will be almost completely fan-run.
