In trying to immerse the audience in the seedy underworld of the 1930s Berlin cabaret scene, we used the entire New Atheneum theatre as our canvas, building out a forestage of cabaret tables and even turning the auditorium into a Nazi Party rally at the end of the first act.
The aesthetic drew on 1930s graphic styles, with a distorted, collapsing proscenium providing a framing structure for the staging, as well as hinting at the characters inability to see the collapse of their world as they know it.
