HOVER FOR DESIGN STATEMENT
This adaptation of Goldoni’s comedy required a great deal of fluidity annd flexibility within the design. Performed in repertory with two other productions, the design for The Servant of Two Masters had to stand out from the rest of the season with bold colors and lush compositions to create a romantic landscape of Venice. This production was particulary challenging because a new audience member would be a part of the cast with each performance. On top of the already silly and ridiculous nature of the story, our production used MadLibs filled out by the audience to fuel the script for each performance. This level of uncertainty each performance had to be accounted for with beautiful, but also adaptable lighting.
