Timon of Athens Opens!

We have opened Timon of Athens, and I couldn't be more proud of it: it just looks so beautiful (from the parts I can see when I'm not on stage). Allyn is doing an AMAZING job with the title role, which is a real back-breaker. He makes such sense out this incredibly difficult and dense text, it's a lesson in acting watching him every night. I really love the cast. The design is simply incredible, which I suppose people might come to expect from Jeff, Peter and Anna-Alisa, but they all really out-did themselves here. The real surprise, to me, is what a gorgeous job Bill did as a set designer: it really looks stunning, not only that, it's surprising and so original, and Bill isn't thought of as a set designer, per se. But now he can add that to his list of talents. To think that he did all that AND directed the show so well is really inspiring.

I hope you can come in to see it!
Here's all the info. We have only two weeks left after this!
