A trick of the lighting?

Playwright Barbara Lhota has come up with one of the less likely ideas for a stage play: a live-action version of Russell Stamm’s classic comic Invisible Scarlet O’Neil.

How in the world is this even possible? It takes some doing:

Chloe Baldwin serves as the backbone of the show in the title role, a plucky young woman determined to help people as a newspaper reporter. The exact nature of Scarlet’s power and how she ends up using it are a mix of clever action by Libby Beyreis, assisted by Chloe Baldwin; lighting by Meghan Erxleben; set design by Milo Bue; and direction by Leigh Barrett. Ironically, one would be best to see her “invisibility” to fully appreciate it!

Babes With Blades Theatre Company, which presented this production, has lots of reviews and a brief video for your perusal.
