I have been chasing this script down to design for about fifteen years. It’s my favorite non-traditional opera. Now I can no longer say I’ve never designed it. I had a hell of a lot of fun designing it – and the performers are tearing my face off nightly. During final dress, the end of act one sequence went so well, I let out an audible “YEAH!” when the parts of that last cue of the act fired, totally involuntary. So, all of that being said, if you’re near OKC and want to see a damned great show, come see Jesus Christ Superstar tonight! The show runs through the weekend.
Wendy Mutz was the production photographer for our preview last night. I have never had my work look so beautiful as when Wendy shoots it. Ever. Thank you for always capturing such amazing moments in time. If you’re a lighting designer, you need Wendy Mutz. Have Wendy, will travel. Wendy’s on Facebook, too!
