I am the director of this fine fine show called Nothing and Everything: Improvised Anton Chekhov Plays. I’m over-the-moon with the response and praise we’ve received after two weekends of shows. Most impressively, however, is the level of love and dedication the cast has given. I’ve talked a lot about this show on Facebook, but I wanted to take some time to say more about it and share some of the wonderful photography that’s come out of it. I can call my own photography wonderful, right?
The Hideout Theatre in Austin, TX has become one of my most creative outlet in the realm of photography. I’m often doing exciting work for them that I feel like sharing. Kaci Beeler and Curtis Luciani asked me to photograph promotional head shots for their upcoming production. It’s called F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald Save The World! and it’s a grotesque, improvised comedy show starring sensationalized versions of 1920’s luminaries. It features some of the funniest improvisers in Austin, including: Valerie Ward, Courtney Hopkin, Michael Jastroch, and Jericho Thorp.
I took the photos and Kaci did some brilliant editing. Observe the fruits of our labor and go see the show! It only runs two weekends.
In November & December of 2013, The Hideout Theatre put up a production entitled A Bedtime Gorey, improvised bedtime stories inspired by the works of macabre illustrator, Edward Gorey. I was struck by the set design, costuming, and makeup of the improvisers so I decided to setup a few lights and capture it.
