JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR Opens Tonight at Oklahoma City University!


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!

A Few Pics from La Rondine

I wanted to post a few images taken of the La Rondine dress rehearsal in Oklahoma.  The show has some unbefreakinglievable student singers, I got CHILLS up and down my arms when Magda sang her arias in Act I – well, all of her arias were beautiful – the girl has soul!

La Rondine

La Rondine

I’m about to open a production of Puccini’s La Rondine as a guest artist for Oklahoma City University’s Department of Opera and Musical Theatre, directed by the fabulous David Herendeen.  After two weeks of cueing, rehearsals, and awesomeness, La Rondine is ready!

I’ll post some pictures as soon as the show “officially” opens.  It’s in a preview phase right now.  The official opening per the School of Music is November 14-16.

What are you working on right now?  Post in the comments!
