Rose Brand Action Design competition!

I have recently returned from the annual theatrical conference USITT (United States Institute of Theatre Technology) in Fort Worth, Texas.  This competition involved draping something in three hours using unknown materials. The fabric wasn’t revealed until the timer began.  A very fun challenge!

Don John Appreciation Post!
Pictured is Don John from Connecticut Repertory Theatre’s Much Ado About Nothing.
I LOVE Don John.  He’s one of my favorite Shakespeare villains.  Not because he’s sadistically cruel, or conniving, or murderous— it’s because he’s the OPPOSITE of all those things!  He’s dour and brooding, and his plans are so inept, they’re almost cartoon-ish.
I am convinced that if Shakespeare lived today, Don John would be a Saturday morning cartoon villain in the 1990’s.  AND I LOVE IT.   Don John Appreciation Post!

Don’t leave the costumer alone in the shop on a weekend.  Especially when they’re snowed in.

They tend to spread out a bit.
