Lucy Dreaming closes tonight at The Factory Theatre in Boston.Â Produced by GAN-e-meed as part of FeverFest.
We’re operating on a shoe-string for this one.Â Well, technically, without a shoe string.
Plus, we got involved late in the game so I didn’t bother to pull in any designers.Â I figured I could wing it.
And I can.
Except when it comes to lights.
Because I’ve realized that, as a director, the design element that speaks to me the loudest are the lights.Â Costumes run a close second.Â The hard part being that I know plenty about costumes and virtually nothing about lighting.
I have visions of halos and shadows, colors and dimensions.Â But I can’t get it to come across with my meager knowledge of how to plug in a light and not to touch the bulb or it may explode in my face.
This realization is, quite literally, an eye-opener.
So, my next task….get the lighting skills.
Just what I need, right?Â More to do.
