Nothing and Everything poster for The Hideout Theatre Anton Chekhov show

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?

There’s only five more shows left. You can get information about tickets at The Hideout Theatre’s website

Some of the promotional photography from our sessions at the beautiful Elisabet Ney Museum estate located in Hyde Park, Austin TX.

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.
