In three visits to Miami, the House Theatre of Chicago has always exuded an underlying love of the gloriously imaginative storytelling only theater can deliver. But its current entry at the Arsht Center, Rose and the Rime, is specifically about storytelling as much for adults as children.
The melding of narrative metaphors and stage magic are emblematic of the spectacle infused in the play Death and Harry Houdini, another imagistic work from the House Theatre of Chicago and the Arsht Center for the Performing Arts opening this week. Last year, Arsht vice president Scott Shiller brought the House production of The Sparrow to Miami, notable for its highly stylized brew of acting, video, music, singing, lighting, sound and imaginative staging.
