While reading a good book might generally be thought of as a passive activity, in Another Place, Another Time, reading becomes an adventure to places that exist gloriously in the crevices of one’s fertile imagination. The show is in essence a book that comes to life, providing a figurative door into which one wanders while reading, leading us into the fantasy world of one’s colorful thoughts.
