How To Make 105 Minutes Seem Like 105 Minutes (Without Really Trying)

Well, first off, I think this is the year of underlit shows. I’ve just seen another show where the designer, although with good design intent, has missed important ensemble action because of lack of light.Enough said.

Now, something that constantly amazes me is when there is no music during a blackout. With a show as long as HTSIBWRT, it’s important to keep the action moving. It’s the set designers job to create a set that can assist with this. If the set design fails, why do directors and MDs just ignore this and let there be an awkward silence (or not so as we hear crew fumble in the darkness).

I mean really, it’s a no brainer.

Rant out.
