I always like it in the spring when the local theaters announce the shows they’re doing for their upcoming seasons. I like reading about new shows I’ve never heard of or old shows that I love to see again. There’s this “theater flurry” and then Summer. And it seems like everyone retreats to the Berkshires or the Cape and the local theater scene gets very quiet. I like that transition.
But as I’ve written before, I love the transition to Fall. And that’s where I find myself this morning… thinking ahead, reading scripts, doodling notes, organizing binders. Getting ready for MY season. And I hope you’ll check out these all-new-to-Boston productions.
First off I’m designing the costumes for ArtsEmerson/Company One’s Production of “An Octoroon.”
Working with the same director as “An Octoroon” Summer Williams, I’m then designing the hilarious and disturbing and creative and-way-too-many-adjectives-just-see-it “Booty Candy” at Speakeasy Stage.
Then I am returning to Lyric Stage where I designed “Intimate Apparel” last season to design, “Mr. Burns, a Post Electric Play”. Yup, it features the Simpsons in all their animated style! Should be a crazy one to create!
I hope along the way to add a few more productions and if so, I’ll update you here. Maybe you’re like me and you too like to plan for a season-full of great local theater.
