This Best Of is not just for the work that Michael Sommers and Susan Haas do at Open Eye. It's also for the space itself. The producers gave us a string of high-quality shows last year, topped off by the mad German fairy tale Strumply Peter. The space has also become a home for smaller theaters that seem to be inspired by the mad energy found here. This includes 7th House Theater (Little Shop of Horrors) as well as the Loudmouth Collective (A Bright New Boise) — both of which did terrific work at Open Eye in 2014.
