Photo Flash: First Look at The New Colony's REWILDING GENIUS at Steppenwolf

Performances of Steppenwolf Theatre Company's fifth annual Garage Rep kicked off last month, featuring The New Colony's world-premiere production of reWILDing Genius and more. These innovative storefront companies perform in rotating repertory for ten weeks through April 20, 2013 (press performances are March 8 and 9, 2014). Performances are scheduled Wednesday through Sunday in the Garage Theater (1624 N Halsted St). BroadwayWorld has a first look at reWILDing Genius below!

The New Colony presents reWILDing Genius by Andrew Hobgood and Megan Johns, directed by Andrew Hobgood. Featuring Will Cavedo, Caitlin Chuckta, Sarah Gitenstein, Evan Linder, Morgan McNaught, Wes Needham and Stephanie Shum.

An Uptown Chicago loft becomes a breeding ground for young minds looking to change the world. Self-identified geniuses, cybervigilantes, hacktivists and anarchists cast off the laws of the land as they attempt to alter Humanity's fate. As these Millennials plot against enemies and build complex data schemes, reWILDing Genius asks how far is too far in our quest to save us from ourselves.

The creative team for reWILDing Genius includes William Boles (scenic design), Curtis Cassell (costume design), Sarah Hughey (lighting design), Nick Kawahara (sound design), Kent Cubbage (projections design), Jenny Pinson (properties design), Sarah Collonge (stage manager),Geno Franco (production manager), Christopher Kristant (technical director), Christopher Chmelik (dialect coach), Ben Kaye (assistant director), William Glick (script supervisor) and Jesse Roth (dramaturg).

The New Colony (Andrew Hobgood and Evan Linder, Co-Artistic Directors; Sarah Gitenstein, Associate Artistic Director; Stephanie Shum, Managing Director), the 2011 recipient of the Broadway In Chicago Emerging Theater Award, strives to contribute original material to the American artistic canon and develop a new kind of theater going audience. Through collaboration with emerging artists of all disciplines, The New Colony continually develops new work and fresh perspectives. With the goal of exploring enticing subject matter and the common language of experience, The New Colony will cultivate the next generation of arts supporters.
