"Jonathan Larson and his story is something that I really don’t take lightly. He was such genius. Rent is the reason why I am trying to be an actor and trying to be a writer, and there is such a tragedy [to his death] that is still so palpable. I did Rent about two years ago with the director Karen Azenberg, who knew him, who knew his family and was invited to that famous sing-through the night that he had passed away, and couldn’t go because it was too close. And members of her family worked on Rent. She said [Jonathan] was present [in spirit] every day, it felt like, and how that tragedy was still looming over her because of the kind of person he was. So, I was very nervous, sure, but it is a great story and it is something that really happened and you know, hopefully Kyle has mirrored Jonathan Larson’s enthusiasm and his light and positivity in a way that will make that parallel something that’s a tribute and not exploitative. It’s about this kid who loves this art form more than anything, and has worked so hard and struggled so much to get the show to where it is, and then can’t be there to see it through. Hopefully that’s the story that we’re telling."

The Phantom of the Opera UK Tour 2012 set designs [x]

UGH you know what this makes me angry. These set designs actually look amazing — without the costumes that have been butchered from the originals, and WITH the scope that I’m sure a touring production can’t reproduce in every theatre. The perspective I get from here is that they’re going for a much grander, more heavy looking set that resembles real operas, or at least the ones I’ve seen, instead of the pop-up book stylized structure of the original. And frankly, I think it works! It’s effective in these little designs, and I FEEL the show oozing from it. It’s so ORIGINAL (except maybe the Hannibal scene), that I just GOD I just wish they had original COSTUMES that weren’t so heavily stripped down, because they look so out of place when actually on stage. And the blocking also makes little sense, and the characterization. Just give me original costumes and a better direction, and I can handle this set.

I’m with you there - these sets are glorious. While I respect the original decision to use a black box, I think that these designs are beautiful and could have really shone. Also that lighting design for the graveyard is beautiful and I wish we could have had it in the final product. And the floating candles in the Lair are gorgeous.

Basically, give me a solid-quality high school production using these sets, or a reimagined tour with the original blocking and Bjornson’s costumes.

Modern Day Phantom: Autumn Aminta
You probably remember that I’ve done a Modern Day Aminta before, and I think we can pretty safely consider that the summer edition. 
Anyways, fall was rolling around. Trench coat whether is in the air (and you know how much I love a good trench coat) so I started thinking about how the original costume is very much a bolero/overdress closed over a corset and petticoat and how that might translate to a coat/dress combo in a modern day setting. The only thing is that I might have misjudged how a double-breasted coat hangs when unbuttoned and I’m just going to leave it at that.

After all these years, this is still my favourite photo of any Spring Awakening production ever.
Spring Awakening - Sweden 2008-2009, Joan Alderman as Melchior and Mari Haugen Smistad as Wendla.

This is one of my favorites too! That was such a great looking production.

operafantomet:

As requested: Christine’s bodice, as worn in “Think of Me”. 

She wears the same bodice as in “Hannibal”, but a skirt with a bodice continuation is put on top. It makes it look like Christine’s costume has a pointed bodice like that of Carlotta. The false bodice is usually in a V shaped pattern, made of the same materials as the “Hannibal” slavegirl bodice. The exception is in the US, where the front is left open, and only a velvet “band” holds the skirt together in front. This band is of alternating red and green velvet, and has a gem in front. 

1. Sarah Brightman in her original West End costume. 
2. Celia Graham, West End. 
3. Rachel Barrell, West End. 
4. Marni Raab, Broadway. 
5. One of Maria Bjørnson’s costume design for the Slavegirls. 
6. Sandra Joseph, Broadway. 
7. Teresa de Zarn, Toronto (IMO one of the best fitted versions). 
8. Viktoria Krantz, Copenhagen. 
9. Ana Marina, Australia/World Tour.
