A Silent Film, Live On Stage

Running through this weekend, the Overtime Theater presents the final performances of Sophie Bolles’ stage adaptation of one of the creepiest movies of all time, the silent classic, “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari.”  It may not be traditional Valentine’s Day Weekend fare, but you can experience an exquisite production that effectively recreates the feel of a silent film live. 

Five years ago, Bolles first saw “Caligari.” At the time, she says she “Fell in love with the human face’s ability to convey emotion without saying anything.”

In the above interview, Bolles details the preparation and staging for this unique theatrical experience.
