broadway set design

JUST A QUICK PSA FOR THE THEATRE FANDOM OF TUMBLR

People who have never seen a show live are true theatre fans

People who have only seen movie productions of musicals are true theatre fans

People who only know the “mainstream” shows are true theatre fans

People who don’t know many shows are true theatre fans

People whose favorite musical is Phantom, Les Misérables, or Wicked ate true theatre fans

ALSO:

People who don’t plan to go into theatre as a career are true thespians

People who only do theatre with their schools are true Thespians

People who can’t be a part of shows for whatever reason are still theatre people

We all share a deep appreciation for the arts, so why do we have to go around being dicks to each other because some of us choose to appreciate it in a different way, sometimes the only way we can?

That will be all

I’ve posted a few times about the Broadway production of “Dracula” designed by Edward Gorey. I’m glad to say I got a chance to see it. The later film starring Frank Langella (1979) didn’t have the benefit of that beautiful production design.

(A few of these photos may be from a recent revival Houstan of the production but they recreated the sets so well, it’s hard to tell the difference.)
