KC Repertory "Mystery of Imra Vep" preview by Steve Walker
The Kansas City Repertory Theatre's latest production, The Mystery of Irma Vep, features
eight characters of both sexes, including the Lord and Lady Hillcrest,
their maid and butler, and a couple of surprise visitors.
the license for the show stipulates that it can only be cast with two
actors of the same gender, it requires a dizzying amount of split second
costume changes that depend on both a skillful designer and dressers
with laser focus.
