The name Blue Bridge Repertory Theatre is inspired by the beauty and simplicity of the Joseph Strauss designed Johnson Street Bridge that defined the entrance to the Upper harbour in Victoria BC. until 2017. Offering a unique and innovative way of spanning two parts of this modern day metropolis, this bridge was the perfect metaphor for a new company that provides opportunities to an emerging generation of theatre artists while helping to redefine the nature of its city’s downtown core.
Strauss is most famous for his design of the Golden gate Bridge in San Francisco.
