Just took in THE INVISIBLE MAN at The Studio Theatre and loved it. I think our student subscribers did too! Beautiful producing — a production that went through extensive workshopping, clearly, in New York (directed by Christopher McElroen, Founder of the Classical Theatre of Harlem) before its premiere last spring at The Court Theatre in Chicago. Loved its unfolding in three acts; three very well spent hours; deeply absorbing and refreshing in its novel theatrical choices (giving huge respect to the language of the novel itself). I’ll let our commenters hold forth. Only to appreciate that in this first month of theater-going, we’ve seen some great, great shows! Washington theater’s gotten off to an ambitious and brilliant start, and we here at Theater J are happy to be in the mix. Now here’s the money shot from the show at Studio.
This show inspires in so many ways. More on that soon!
Theater J's 2012-2013 season, “THIS IS WHO WE ARE: Beginnings, Belonging, Becoming & Breaking Through,” a line-up of eight shows charting the drama of finding one's calling, one's voice, and the negotiation of race and identity in a changing world..
