Boston Theater and Beyond
So many wonderful shows, so many great sets. A few of my favorites, just from the Huntington - "Rock and Roll," "She Loves Me," and "Two Men of Florence."
I also liked the set for "She Loves Me." I thought the Huntington's set for "Fences" was great, too, almost claustrophobic. You got the sense of just how walled-off this black family was not just from white Pittsburgh but from society in general.
The design/tech department at the Huntington does some great work. Sometimes one has to just marvel at the sets for a while. Admittedly, they have the budget to do things that smaller companies can't afford to do, but similarly monied companies often don't.Some puppeteers, like Great Small Works, do some interesting sets on a budget-- but they are also working with much smaller actors.
