Ad executive and constant dreamer Tereasa Surratt is a master of transformation.
The Steppenwolf Garage Theatre is the most intimate of the company’s three performance spaces, and it’s where new work by American playwrights is showcased in an edgy setting that needed a little warming up.
With a $20,000 budget and plenty of props from the theater’s warehouse, Surratt and the Ogilvy team created a chock-full-of-cool, L-shaped lounge area that wraps the performance space. The lounge encourages theatergoers to linger among vintage furniture, a smorgasbord of textures (including a wall made of hundreds of scripts installed by the multitalented INDO Projectswindow dressers) and a small bar serving beer and wine.
The next time you have tickets to a Garage Theatre show, go early–and stay late.
