ONE YEAR IN THE MAKING

Coming off the heels of their 2016 production of Slipping, The Restless Observers decided to raise the stakes with their most challenging and ambitious production to date. It was a daunting task, with the Broadway version of the show being a technical marvel that took a crew of 50 people to complete.  Lacking the financial means to create such a spectacle, it was decided that this lack of effects could be actually be a benefit to the production. The Restless Observers prefer story as opposed to effects. With this in mind a large majority of the attention over the production was focused on creating dynamic, genuine characters to draw the audience in by means of the story. One year was spent on extensive autism research, character studying, and devising ( a form of theater that focuses on actors using their bodies to create an environment and to move the story forward).  This attention to detail heightened the story to a level rarely seen and resulted in a unique production that stayed true to the mission of the company.
