With the closing of Becky Shaw this weekend activity on the BUT stage turned to loading in the upcoming opera, Susannah. Crews have only a few short days – from now until April 15 – to transform the stage into New Hope Valley, Tennessee, where this musical drama takes place. Here are some photos of where we are in the process:
(Above) The construction crew works on stage to put in the raked deck (a stage floor constructed on a slant, so that the part nearest the back wall is higher than the part nearest the edge of the stage).
(Above) Leaves are hung from the line sets to give the appearance of trees overhead. Outside the shop, tree trunks were piled up awaiting installation.
(Below) And remember that paint treatment texture? Here’s how it developed:
Susannah runs April 15 - 18 at the Boston University Theatre, 264 Huntington Ave, Boston MA 02115. Tickets available online 24/7 or by phone at 617 933-8600, or in person at our box office locations.
