Frequently, a character gets a brief stay of execution. That character will then go off to settle his/her affairs before s/he dies.
We need lots, lots, lots more adultery in this show.
Seriously. Every other story in the nights has an unfaithful wife in it.
Could we include stories about unfaithful men, or is that too far afield from the source material?
I went ahead and ordered this costume. If it winds up not fitting me, I'm sure somebody else can use it.
Would it be possible to have a backlit fabric somewhere in the set? It would be so fun to pantomime some scenes entirely in silhouette.
I'm still pondering how/if we'll address the fact that, as Curtis put it, "We're a bunch of mostly-white dudes doing this show."
It might be useful to draw on the tradition where performers profess their humility in putting on a show with inadequate resources (see: the first choral speech from Henry V). I like the general idea of "We can't become genies or bring forth vast armies or transform into animals, but help us out by offering your imagination." I think that could also apply to "I'm white and I'm playing a character who's not white."
