Like seeing Tim Burton's nightmares come to life, Pointless Theatre's production of Doctor Caligari brings one of the first horror films to the stage in a visually stunning adaptation. The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, with its distorted, Gothic visual design and creepy carnival plot, was one of the key films of the German Expressionist movement in silent cinema. Pointless Theatre draws on its unique puppetry style, using life-size puppets operated by masked puppeteers, plus stylized set design and a live string trio to capture the distinctive look and feel of the original. Journey into madness as Doctor Caligari takes over Washington, D.C.'s Mead Theatre Lab.
