Review Quote: Star Witness

“at the start of “Star Witness,” the new show created for the House Theatre of Chicago, you at first think that the entire show is being staged in the anteroom, or lobby, that sits just beyond the main playing area.

But that is merely an illusion. Before long, those heavy doors are thrown open to reveal designer Lee Keenan’s telescopic vista of a young woman, pedaling down the roads of a small town, as if her very life depended on her escape. The space occupied by the show expands exponentially from there.

That effect is an eye-popping theatrical moment in a very interesting and provocatively staged new show” – Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune
