Here are the model photos of A Civil War Christmas. Scenic design by Dan Ostling. The model is really beautiful, huh? The design makes use of the architecture of the theatre - not really a lot of built units - and we don't hide much. So Dan put his modeling energy into recreating the interior of the Boston University Theatre and took these great photos.
I love being in the theatre when it's empty, no set onstage, the walls and the rigging in plain view. For me it speaks of the promise of what it yet to come, the potential for theatre magic, something new and full of possibilities, taking you anywhere your imagination leads. It's a beautiful space, right? I can't think of a better place to set this play - come see where it takes you.
We'll start set construction in the next week or so, right along with the set for A Long and Winding Road (I'll dig up a sneak preview on that for you soon).
