Silhouette Has Substance And Style To Spare


I think we’ve all encountered at least one moment in our theatergoing careers when the endless restaging of classic shows has worn a little thin. If my arbitrary projection of my own gripes onto you happens to ring even slightly true, allow me to recommend a production by the name of Silhouette, currently playing at Capitol Hill’s Annex Theatre. As an original science fiction acapella musical, Silhouette immediately stands out against the backdrop of a local theater scene steeped in Shakespeare and Tennessee Williams. Now of course, distinction on its own is not enough to carry a production. Which is why I’m very happy to report that Silhouette packs enough dramatic heft on its own merits to entertain a far broader audience than merely fans of the above genres.
