SET FOR FROST/NIXON (2013, Westport Community Theatre; directed by Bob Johnson). What I liked most about this set was its flexibility for becoming many different locations with minimal furnishing; the platforms Right and Left gave characters who commented on the action an elevated space; the pixelated design on the back wall opened to allow entrances and exits. The live video screen was not as big as I liked, but I think it all worked well with our small space and limited resources.
Al, we thank you for your extensive work with Ripple Effect Artists and your commitment to our mission.
