Here are some backstage pictures from my show, Measure For Measure. All were taken in the green room except for the first one, which was taken during one of the dress rehearsals.
The characters are Esculus (dressed as Chaplan), Master Froth, and Pompey (The bawd/tapster and me). We scrapped the suit I was wearing as it was not 1920’s period.
This is Lucio and Pompey (me) re-enacting a scene in the green room. This is the suit I wear for my last scene, when I become an apprentice hangman (1920’s gangster.)
Here I am with Abhorsen (Daryl, who works with me at FMP). We are supposed to be dressed identical as I become his apprentice to avoid being whipped and hanged for being a bawd (pimp).
Lucio and one of the Dance Hall girls who also plays Juliet.
Isabelle (Dina) discussing a future production of Shakespeare with the guy who plays Barnardine. And yes, I’ve been working with these folks for months and still can’t remember most of their names. Don’t hate on me; I’m just terrible with names.
More cast members, the Duke in Disguise, Claudio, the “other” Isabella, and Escalus (dressed like Chaplan).
Isabella, the Friar, and Marianna
More cast members waiting and changing.
Another candid cast shot. Angelo is on the sofa.
Mistress Overdone’s butt. (Sorry Francie, I couldn’t help myself)
Isabella and Elbow (who also plays Abhorsen)
I hope you liked the pictures. Two shows down and six to go. I have a show today at 3 pm with call at 2 pm. About ten of my friends are coming to see the show today so I am very excited. Afterwards, we are all going over to my buddy Steve’s house. Woo hoo!!
