As previously noted, I am returning to the Contemporary American Theater Festival. I continue to be proud of my association with this amazing and improbable place. CATF (in it's 26th season this year) was named one of the top 10 festivals in the WORLD to attend this summer by worldguide.eu. I am designing 20th Century Blues by Susan Miller and The Wedding Gift by Chisa Hutchinson, both world premieres. The two shows run in rep with each other, and there is a two show day in the weekly performance schedule that demands a one hour changeover between the two sets! That requires a transition from a very realistically outfitted New York artist's loft to the multi-location interior of a palace sometime in the very, very distant future. Here are some renderings of both shows.
