The 1812 Theatre (Vic). Director: Robin Miller. May 26 – June 25, 2011.
So excellent is Robin Emmett’s design and artwork for 1812 Theatre’s production of Tom Dulak’s Breaking Legs, that you have trouble realising that you are not looking at the actual scene, a mafia connected Italian restaurant in the USA.
The audience are at the rear of the restaurant’s interior, looking toward the window, and out on the car park with several cars in view. Painted on the rear wall, the cars look most realistic. The interior side walls are views across the ocean, with a large painting of the statue of David on each side.
