"All Quiet" cast and crew visit Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall nd Museum

On a Saturday morning in early Setpember, several Prime Stage personnel, along with "All Quiet on the Western Front" director Scott P. Calhoon, visited Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall and Museum in Oakland for an educational session with the museum's curator Michael Kraus. One of our priorities with "All Quiet" is that it be completely authentic in depicting the battlefield ambience of World War I.

Mike is a military expert who has consulted on a number of films, including "Cold Mountain." During our visit to the museum, he described the conditions during The Great War, showed us a wide variety of artifacts related to the war and answered a number of questions.

We're honored that Mike is serving as a consultant on our production, and will continue to work with him and his colleague, Education Director Tim Neff, throughout our rehearsal and production periods.
