Looking Glass Theatre Company in Chicago, IL has just extended the run of The Arabian Nights, directed by Mary Zimmerman. This show is getting a heck of a lot of great reviews – Mary Zimmerman is a pretty amazing director, and the lighting designer for the show is TJ Gerckens, the managing director at the Contemporary Theatre Company in Columbus, OH. If you’re in or around Chicago, you should most definitey try to get tickets for the show. I’m a huge fan of TJ’s work – his Metamorphoses lighting with the huge pool gave some of the coolest looks my eyes have ever seen. TJ sees light and lighting like a man born for the purpose – I always wonder what the color of the sky in his world is.
Check out some images, and go see the show!
