Have just arranged a visit at the National Theatre Archives for when I’m in London in two weeks time to see Frankenstein and whatever they’re willing to show about the costume design for this show. Am excited.
Last time I was there (April 2011) I watched After the Dance. The above sketch and a couple of others were the result. All costume research, you understand ;).
Speaking of London, does anybody know how chances are for getting day or standing tickets for The Recruiting Officer. I had a look at what’s offered in returns, but the prices are exorbitant. Does one have to queue for day tickets? If yes, what time of arrival is recommended to ensure one gets one?
I’m also planning to go and watch After The Dance there…! Have no idea about the R. Officer tickets, sorry. I saw it in few weeks ago when in London last time.
Oh, be sure to look through the rehearsal notes, they’re hilarious! There’s a whole debate about whether the creature should have erection in the scene with the hooker and how they might manage it. Ari and I nearly had hysterics!
