Challenged by a staging that is done in the runway style of seating, with the audience on two-sides of the stage and all action taking place in a long narrow space, between the segments of the playgoers, scenic designer Wilson Chin has created an appropriate apartment within the walls of a realistic building.
It was there, while working as an apartment complex manager, that Karn met an agent at a traffic school who told him about the audition for ‘Home Improvement.’ Karn scored the role after ‘Groundhog Day’ star Stephen Tobolowsky had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts.
