The conceit for the Stage Design was that you are actually watching the story told by the Time Dragon Clock. The clock work mechanical traveling cart that shows the truth. That is the reason for the dragon, the large clock face dial and all the gears and machinations and the whole proscenium design. That is why (in the sit down productions) you see the people operating it with pulleys and ropes. It was a nod to the source material which sort of frames the novel.
Yes bjh2114, it was, however it is no longer running so voters will not have a chance to see it. Too many times I have seen unworthy shows win just because of their commercial value and not so much their artistry.
If a show ran till 11 PM when was the final press? It would have been for the next days morning paper.I believe critics pretty much, have always seen the show before opening night and have their reviews written. They were released after the curtain came down with the first morning publication (which in olden days) were typeset and printed the night of the Opening. There might have been a few who did the opening night thing but the papers would not have been available till the wee hours.<
HELL, the movie has Buster Keaton, Cecil B DeMille and Hedda Hopper making cameos in it. You can't beat that! Wasn't particularly fond of the musical first time around (Saw Betty Buckley in the role). I have heard that this is somewhat of a stripped down version and that Glen Close was worth the price of admission. I will probably just rent the movie.
Yeah John Douglas Thompson, when asked awhile back to reprise the role, sort of said "Been there done that." I have been too busy Dusting off, repairing and rebuilding to sit in on a rehearsal. However from what I am hearing, Mr Abili is going to knock it out of the park as well.
Irish Rep is remounting the Emperor Jones by Eugene O'Neil. I believe previews begin the first or second week of March. I am very proud of this piece! Sort of a self promo here. Shill if you will. Got to design all the apparitions and Hunts. It is actually more revelevant in todays political clime then when we put it up 8 years ago! Imagine, A self proclaimed Emperor's slow descent into madness.
Patti Lupone went to my High School, Northport's own¡ She was a few year ahead of me but I rmember a daywhen she came into my Jr High's lunchroom and belted out a couple lines fro a show they were doing at the High School to drum up audience.
