I went to see the latest incarnation of Anna In The Darkness at the Dream Theatre Company's new space, which they are calling Dream Laboratory. It's a smaller space, but plenty big enough to put on a show, and there was a lot of audience with me. So I'm thinking that means the neighborhood is actually a better one for putting on shows.
It's a one-woman show performed by Megan Merrill, who is a real trouper. At one point, some late-comers arrived, and Megan managed to find them seats while performing. She did this while remaining in character, of course. It actually "worked" because the piece, like most one-person shows, punches holes in the fourth wall.
When there's no one else up on stage,
you look out and try to engage.
