You may already know “Carrie” from Stephen King's 1974 thriller, director Brian DePalma's 1976 movie or the 2013 remake. Maybe you bought tickets to one of the 21 performances of the now-legendary 1988 Broadway musical or the reworked version that played off-Broadway in 2012. You may even have met it as the unauthorized spoof “Scarrie! The Musical.”

One of the more evocative, challenging art pieces I have seen in years took place as an “immersive theatrical experience” during the Three Rivers Arts Festival a couple of weeks back, and my mind is still working it out.

From the folks who brought you the massive Downtown theater event known as "STRATA" comes "OJO," a world premiere immersive theater experience billed as "the next generation of travel."

Most people spend their lives striving for certainty. Not so with artists, says Jeffrey Carpenter, artistic director of Bricolage Productions. Asked by the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust to produce an immersive theater work for the Three Rivers Arts Festival, the adventuresome troupe createdOJO, a show meant to suggest the artist's metaphorical journey of creation.

When you step through the entrance of the Bricolage Theater, you will find yourself at the bottom of the sea.  The walls will whirl with deep ocean blue.  Sea creatures will swim along the walls (you get to craft your own and add it to the ecosystem!).  In one corner of this Living Aquarium, you can wade through the Tiny Ocean—a “tactile swimming experience”—and in another, try your hand at “Pin the Tail on the Merfolk.”  And this is just the lobby.

The propulsion of the story keeps you riveted from beginning to end

The Orson Welles radio presentation of H.G. Wells' War of the Worlds, in an adaptation by Howard Koch, has been in the news recently because it's the 75th anniversary of this show-biz legend: Told through a series of "we interrupt this broadcast" news bulletins about an invasion from Mars, the program was so real (and/or people are so stupid) that some believed a Martian attack was underway.

I'll admit that when I was first invited to go to Bricolage for their "midnight radio show" of War of the Worlds, I was a bit skeptical. Considering I had to attend in person for a radio show, I was confused from the get-go.

Ladies and gentlemen, I have a grave announcement to make. Incredible as it may seem, both the observations of science and the evidence of our eyes lead to the inescapable assumption that those strange beings who landed in the Jersey farmlands tonight are the vanguard of an invading army from the planet Mars.
