From Press Release:

Just two years ago, Atomic Arts turned the concept of outdoor theater on its ear and gained an almost immediate cult following when it brought ¬Å“Amok Time¬Â a classic episode from Star Trek: The Original Series to packed audiences in North Portland’s Woodlawn Park.

This July, the crew will bring to life one of the series’ most iconic episodes, ¬Å“Mirror, Mirror,¬Â where a transporter malfunction thrusts Kirk, Uhura, Scotty and McCoy into a parallel universe where the peacekeeping Federation is replaced by a ruthless, evil Empire, Captain Kirk is a tyrant and Spock dons a sinister beard. If the crowd’s reaction to the teaser performed at the end of last season’s show, the fans couldn’t be more excited; and for that matter, neither could Atomic Arts. Says Artistic Director Adam Rosko, ¬Å“[This is] my all time favorite episode. It’s got a great story, interesting variations on the characters, a powerful message, and all the while maintains a sense of humor!¬Â

Fans of last season’s episode, ¬Å“Space Seed¬Â will find the same balance of loving homage and theatrical creativity in Mirror, Mirror, but they will also find one notable difference, as this year’s show will be staged in the round, so audience members from all sides will get to see the phaser hits, mind melds, and Vulcan neck pinches.
