ILLUMINATING THE SPACE: CHALK REPERTORY THEATRE
"There is an unpretentious, welcome and willing vibe in the air at a Chalk Rep show. In creating a site-specific production model, they have also bred a certain, "be-in-the-room-at-this-time" quality in their audience. The crowd is engaged. The conversation between actors and audience feels intimate and specific. This is not a theatre with a four thousand member crowd being addressed by onstage actors blinded by powerful lights. These shows are specific and intimate, and the illumination comes from the thoughtful relationship between performer, audience, and space."
