Sensory overload is the stock and trade at Rawkus. The massive venue, sporting 13,000 square feet for hundreds of regular-shaped feet to stand in, carries electronic accoutrements that range from a surrealistic laser system to a pro audio system for transcendent evenings out. While sprinkling its schedule with DJs, dance parties, and rock acts, the venue also serves beer and liquor from its bar and snacks from its kitchen.
Murray Ross has been artistic director of Theatreworks almost since the company was founded in 1975. In his 30 years at the helm, he has adapted and written more than 100 works for the stage. His pen has carved out originals such as I am Nikola Tesla as well as adaptions of Huckleberry Finn and Plato's Symposium. These have all seen life at the Dusty Loo Bon Vivant Theater, an intimate venue that allows for dynamic, ever-changing stage configurations.
