A short play for Emerson

Rob Orchard and Emerson College have commissioned me and some other Boston playwrights to write short plays for the opening of the Paramount Center in the Fall.

I already wrote earlier about the first season at the Paramount, which is absolutely jaw-dropping, and seeing the actual space, which was amazing.

I decided I wanted to write a play about the paintings of the couples on the walls of the theatre: riffs on Barbier, who was riffing on Verlaine and his "Fetes Galantes".

They kindly let me back into the theatre to walk around and take pictures of the murals (no flash allowed, so they came out a bit dark, unfortunately)

Thought you might like to see a few!
