Backstage with the Theater Oobleck

"Oobleck" (from Dr. Seuss's book Bartholomew and the Oobleck) was picked out of a hat. We very nearly could have been "Theater Rabble" or "Quantum Theater" or "Tenderloin Theater."

Previous incarnations of Oobleck were "Streetlight Theater" (in Ann Arbor) and "Theater Canard." We jettisoned "Canard" because our first theater space was a room behind Cafe Voltaire. And "Voltaire" and "Canard" together... it was just too French.
