Basic Details
Time Period:

Current

Costume & Set Pieces:

When performing the show remotely it helps to have the actors record themselves on phones or cameras and send them to one editor to edit them together.  In scenes where two or more actors share a scene, these can be recorded as a ‘web-meeting’.  You can use programs like Google Hangouts and record your screen or record separately and cut back and forth for the lines (if you have a good video editor!).


When performing on a live stage the settings can easily be set up as the following:

Scene 1, 13: Director’s Office: A simple desk and chair, musical posters, scripts on shelves.  He has a lizard in his office.

Scene 2, 7: Stage Manager’s office: black walls, tape, clipboards

Scene 3, 4, 6, 10, 11, 12, 14, 16: Actors can be in their living rooms, kitchens or bedrooms

Scene 5, 15: Karen can be at a piano at home

Scene 8: Dana is in her living room with furniture pushed aside

Scene 9: Max should be sitting in a WELL-LIT room

Scene 17: Everyone is at their respective locations

The show is meant to be performed either on a stage live (like a traditional musical) or remotely.
