The ultimate post-modern statement in Orlando theater.. The Scene The Black Box represents the ultimate post-modern statement in Orlando theater. Its name alludes to the stage itself, which is literally a large wooden black box on wheels. The gimmick here is that the stage moves, often during the performance. The audience encircles the stage, and at certain intervals during the show, stage hands rotate the box around so that a particular portion of the audience gets the best view.
Perks If you're in the wrong seat at the start, you may have the best view by the show's end. That's not to say that you're shut out for a majority of the show. Quite the contrary. The sets are minimalistic, and the actors of the Valencia Character Company usually turn and face all parts of the audience to make sure that no seat gets left out.
The Shows Productions here are mostly of artier fare, which is perfect for those who want less showy productions than what's on at the neighboring East Campus Performing Arts Center.
