Ryan Haase, StillPointe Theatre Initiative
Published: September 18, 2013
Looking at the sets designed by Stillpointe Theatre Initiative’s creative director, Ryan Haase, one can’t help but get the feeling that he is living on the wrong side of the last century. Old furniture, peculiar antiques, and countless books are staples in his creations, giving the sense that the audience is watching theater in their grandmother’s attic or in the basement of an old antique store. Never straying too far from this look, Haase has managed to bring a certain cohesion to all of Stillpointe’s productions, creating a familiarity for the audience that keeps them coming back for more. This man has panache.
