The most recent show I've seen is The Lion King. I saw it on Mother's Day last year in Madison with my mom.

The play itself is a really fun piece, exploring the world of video games and the people who play them. The show has a real Left 4 Dead vibe, which has only gotten creepier since we've started getting lighting and sound in. The set design is simple, but absolutely amazing; the highlight of the set is the floor, which is covered in pink and lime post-it notes (post-it notes are a major motif throughout the play). I don't know how he managed it, but our scenic designer arranged the different individual shades of post-its so that, under certain lighting conditions, hidden patterns emerge in the floor. It's unbelievably effective, and REALLY creepy. This is shaping up to be a fantastic show--if you live in California, come by and see us!

That sounds amazing! Makes me wish I lived in California. What sort of games are referenced, and is there any music used from actual games? Or is this more a look at gamer culture?

More of a look at gamer culture. I don't think we're using any music from video games, though as I said we're just now getting sound and lighting in (I'm off today while those specific elements are finalized, tomorrow is cue-to-cue). We have some really great atmospheric pieces, though--not music, but background ambiance, really eerie stuff. It makes me think a lot of Slender, actually, espectially the sound effects heard after you have 7 of the 8 pages. It's really quite creepy!

Sounds creepy, yeah. Haven't played Slender myself but I've seen videos, and if the play sounds anything like Slender...
Best of luck with it though, I think it sounds quite interesting.

Speaking of next semester, I'm thinking about directing a Showcase at the department (every Thursday night and Friday afternoon, we have a 40-60 minute play presented for all the theatre majors, as well as anyone who wants to come watch). Problem is, my library of plays is laughably small, and consists almost entirely of multi-act 90-minute pieces. Does anyone have any suggestions for a good play that would fit the time requirements?

Has anyone else seen this musical? What did you all think?

It's a very injoyable process and I am fortunate enough to have wonderful, experienced director
and good cast.
