Marriott Theatre, Lincolnshire | Winter 2016
- Direction Aaron Thielen
- Set Design Thomas M Ryan
- Lighting Lee Fiskness
- Costumes Susan Hilferty and Nancy Missimi
This show used two ultra-short throw projectors to map the entire back wall - an unusual element for the Marriott. Projections included art work from the period and special effects including chalk board graffiti and text. We also enhanced a shadow play scene by projecting into the shadows of the actors.
Chicago Sun Times: "Thielen’s fluid, out-of-the-box direction (with choreography more reminiscent of Steven Hoggett’s work for “Once” than Bill T. Jones’ moves for Broadway’s “Spring Awakening”) uses the Marriott stage in a whole new way. And he is immeasurably helped by Thomas M. Ryan’s spare, subtly prison-like steel pipe set, Lee Fiskness’ stunning lighting, Anthony Churchill’s gorgeous projections (with images suggestive of such German Expressionist artists as Egon Schiele and Gustav Klimt), and the period-perfect costumes by Susan Hilferty and Nancy Misaim"
