Every so often, a new play hits the regional theatre circuit, and it seems that every prop master in the country is trying to solve the same problem. A few years back, that play wasÂ God of Carnage, and everyone was trying to make an actress projectile vomit on stage.Â l came across a few well-done videos showing how various theatres have solved this gag (no pun intended).
I just wanted to let everyone know that this blog will be going on hiatus until August. I am working on editing my book right now, as well as driving to Santa Fe to work for a few weeks, followed by a quick trip to Italy. I figured this blog could take a break for a few weeks so I can spend as much time on my book as possible; you’ll thank me when it comes out.
So enjoy the following links until then:
The New York Times has an interesting article on prop maker Doug Wright. Wright just finished working on Tom Cruise’s codpiece forÂ Rock of Ages. He works on the weird and completely unique props that pop up in TV and film every now and then.
