Previews start tomorrow! I'm really pleased at how my first sketchbook experience is shaping up. I've seen some really funny, beautiful, touching, and striking pieces come to life in this space I helped create. If you get a chance come and see some happening theatre @ the Chopin Theatre starting tomorrow! If you use the code 144 you can get $5.00 off of your ticket!
I am the Assistant Designer and one of two Props Designers on SKBKX for Collaboraction. I've been working on this Ground Plan for what feels like forever, but I have enjoyed most every part of it. The theme of SKBKX is exponential and Sam Poretta, my designer, came up with the concept of elastic sculptures and how they can sculpt a space in many different ways. We've been working with Insider's Entertainment in figuring out how to make this crazy design come to life. Attached to this entry is a copy of the ground plan I've been working on. I'm very pleased with it, I feel like it's one of the best draftings I've done to date.
I'm excited to get rolling with the crazy train, 19 pieces, 19 (or more) directors, more actors than you can shake a stick at and an AWESOME production team. The madness starts soon! We open in June come and CHECK IT OUT!
