THE OBJECT LESSON created and performed by Geoff Sobelle and directed by David Neumann, opened last night, September 9, at the Kirk Douglas Theatre. Performances continue through October 4, 2015. BroadwayWorld has photos from the opening night festivities below!

Actor-illusionist-inventor Sobelle ("all wear bowlers" and "Elephant Room") returns to the Douglas and transforms the space into an epic storage facility of gargantuan proportion. Boxes are stacked to the ceiling and audiences are free to roam and poke through the clutter in this immersive theatrical installation that unpacks our relationship to everyday objects.

Designer Steven Dufala uses some 3,000 boxes for the installation and for audience seating. Hilarious and heartbreaking, THE OBJECT LESSON is a meditation on the stuff we cling to and the stuff we leave behind.
