Our Visit To DC's Studio Theatre For Invisible Man
This past week our Asst. Technical Director Dan Oleksy and I took a trip to Washington, DC to visit our friends at the Studio Theatre, who are currently building our co-production of Invisible Man,an adaptation of Ralph Ellison's novel by Oren Jacoby, A co-production allows multiple theatres to join its resources and budgets, as well as actors, artists, and staff in order to produce the best possible production. Scenic designer Troy Hourie recently visited our prop stock to choose items for the production. Last Wednesday morning (August 1), the prop shop loaded the Huntington van with props and set dressing for the journey to DC.
That night, I was lucky enough to see Studio's production of Bloody, Bloody Andrew Jackson, which was fantastic. The Studio’s run of Invisible Man begins Sept 5th. After DC, the production will be packed and shipped to Boston where we will then load it into the BU Theatre for its Huntington run. It's already shaping up to be a fantastic production.
As a bonus, I was able to stay with my brother and sister-in-law in Gaithersburg, MD... and see my new nephew, Huey!
