FANTASTIC.Z PRODUCTIONS, 2017
DIRECTED BY BUDDY TODD
Next Fall was my first "big kid" production ("big kid" here meaning "the first show I got paid to design"). I've been fortunate to work on some really lovely, touching, poignant scripts so far, and this one was no exception.
Much like Royals the previous year, Next Fall was very dialogue-driven, so a grand majority of my design was music. I did the same thing for Buddy that I did for William with Royals: I created a playlist of a handful of songs that essentially told the story through music, which allowed me to highlight the central themes of the show.
