3….2…..1……BLAST OFF!! Justin Jones is a problem solver, a mathematic wizard of Oz. In the SCREEN/the THING his outstanding cast including Anna Lawrence, Elliott Durko Lynch, Laura Grant, Christ Schlichting, Karen Sherman, Anna Marie Shogren, Morgan Thorson, and Kristin Van Loon endure 40 minutes of a space odyssey.
The set entailed a trash can where a rock was dropped into and it propelled a loud throbbing pulsating sound, a set drop which turned the Southern Theater’s arch into seven-dimensions, a white tiled 4 x 4 square, a blue-taped line across the stage, and Carl Sagan at the computer. Elliott Durko Lynch’s soundscape contained white noise, vaccum cleaners and chitter chatter, bells, ocean surfing, and ended with a bang with the Chariots of Fire. Jones is fearless at tackling a “physicist’s history of physics.”
