I have added production photos from Scorched at Silk Road Theatre Project. It runs through November 21, so there are still plenty of opportunities to see a truly haunting story. Its the Jeff Recommended Chicago premiere.
Into the Big Green Meadow took place at the Chicago Symphony Orchestra last week to four packed audiences of delighted (and delightfully well-behaved) kids. At Symphony Hall. Which is huge and beautiful! The show was a tribute to the music of Sergei Prokofiev, featuring the childhood favorite Peter and the Wolf. I will post some production photos soon, but I will take a moment to salute the always brilliant work of Marianna Csaszar and Alison Siple. David Kersnar, my grad school chum who I haven’t worked with since his thesis project Marisol, directed the show that was co-produced with Lookingglass. And Brett Schneider brought the magic and the whole thing was…magical!
And in Old projects that are News: I will be re-designing lights for the re-mount of Wind in the Willows at City Lit this December. City Lit Artistic Director Terry McCabe will direct Doug Post’s script. Its a musical–look out for dancing Weasels and Toad!
