While we could name pretty much every show we saw as outstanding in one or more of the design disciplines, the ones we did choose are, in our opinion, the cream of the crop of the past 10 seasons. The "Gold Standard" of design, if you will. Today, we will offer up our favorite projection designs.
BEST OF THE DECADE:
Jeff and Mike's Favorite
FAVORITE PROJECTION DESIGNS OF A PLAY:
Not only were their enormous images impressive, they way they were used to interact with the actors was astonishing.
Ross' innovative projections and videos allowed us to be inside young Christoper's mind, adding layers of understanding and empathy to the experience.
These sobering projections not only brought the period to life, but the names made a humbling reminder of the human tragedy that happens when silence, fear and politics are the rule of the day.
FAVORITE PROJECTION DESIGNS OF A MUSICAL:
These projections/videos advanced this theatrical element to exciting new heights. They were practically a character unto themselves.
Though short-lived, this musical's images provided a stark reminder of history. At the end when the mug shots and "last known photos" of the main characters was a shocking reminder that the were very real people.
Though the opening admittedly made me dizzy, the projections and videos enhanced the other-worldly moments of this musical.
Not only was the whole show, uh, Kong sized, the enormous projections were the most massive to date. And they were beautiful. Sometimes, bigger is better.
The new Gold Standard. The video enhanced the grit and modern bent of this production of this timeless classic. And can we talk about the clarity and sheer size of it all? Wow.
