June 30. Day 181. Perfect Snowstorm
Had there been I'm sure the production meeting would have gone like this.
"So you want to engulf the whole audience in a giant spider's web and rain literally millions of pieces of snow confetti from the roof? And then you envisage a giant bubble machine followed by a avalanche of still more confetti blown in a snow storm through the whole auditorium, right? Well I'm sure that will look absolutely amazing but who do you think is going to clean up after you?"
All I can say is I'm glad the cleaning contract at the Lyric Theatre isn't mine.
As an audience member, however, I have to say this afternoon's performance was amazing in a way that just has you scratching your head as to how anyone could firstly envisage such a spectacle, thenconvince others to back that vision and finally pull it off.
I can not think of a better way to occupy myself on a dreary old Sunday afternoon.
