Lightwire Theatre: The Show
The tallest bird most people have seen is the aptly named Big Bird, who measures a little over eight feet. But in Lightwire Theater’s new production, birds the size of two-story houses traverse the stage alongside sword-fighting cats and aliens outfitted with the teeth of prehistoric tigers. It’s all part of a family-friendly battle between good and evil, set to a live soundtrack and illuminated by electroluminescent wire rather than stage lights powered by Shakespearean soliloquies. The project was imagined by Ian Carney and Corbin Popp, who—along with their wives Eleanor and Whitney—constructed the glowing characters. Fresh off an appearance on America’s Got Talent, they’re also behind the lauded DiNO-Light and The Ugly Duckling, two shows they’ve transported to theaters around the globe.<p>
When Victory Theatre opened in 1921 as part of the Main Street Hotel Sonntag complex, the denizens of Evansville were fed a daily diet of high-class vaudeville: a silent movie, comedy skit, organ music, and then a 10-piece orchestra. In 1928, that dependable formula changed when “talking” pictures arrived, and the venue remained a Loews movie theater until 1971. Having survived a late ‘70s stint as a teen-oriented nightclub and a site for Partridge Family reunions, the Victory emerged triumphant after an extensive 1999 renovation. Now with room for 1,900 audience members, the entertainment mecca hosts top-tier musical and comedic touring acts and plays home to the Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra.<p>
