Based on Pandora’s Box, an 1890s German play and later a 1928 film that featured early silver screen starlet Louise Brooks, the new play Lulu follows a sexy female character who drives both men and women mad with the passion she inspires. Presented by the Silent Theatre Company, the production endeavors to re-create the early style of cinema, with no spoken dialogue and costuming and sets colored only in black and white, which are heavily inspired by the German expressionist style that was prevalent at the time.
