Strange Devices

On the first day of rehearsal for a new show, it's customary for the entire company to gather and meet the cast and creative team. Then everyone settles in for a design presentation by the director and designers.

In the case of Concerning Strange Devices from the Distant West, the presentation was too good not to share. Director Les Waters takes us inside this world premiere from Naomi Iizuka, and that's a fascinating place to be — especially when seen through the eyes of Pauline Luppert, our multimedia manager.

The show begins previews Friday, February 26 and opens on Wednesday, March 3 in the Roda Theatre.

Enjoy this insider's look and make friends with something Strange.
