Thanks to everyone who made it out to Fallen Voices, and to everyone in the team who made it so amazing!
Here are some production photos:
And here’s what the shows were about, if you’re wondering:
Time Will Erase (Alex Eddington/K. Mueller-Heaslip)
Who has the power to destroy an artist’s work? What does that destruction even mean in the face of death, war, and desperation? What sacrifices would you make to express yourself – and what self-expression would you give up to protect the one you love?
Based on the life of Anna Akhmatova, one of Russia’s most famous poets, Time will Erase is a lyrical exploration of the artist’s relationship with society.
Milk and Honey (Michael Hynes/K. Mueller-Heaslip)
Through all of her troubles, Tammy Faye Bakker stood by her man and her faith in the Lord and never complained, even when people lied about her and misrepresented her. Now she is ready to tell her own story the best way she can: with straightforward honesty, music, and puppets.
Electric Eel (Benjamin Mueller-Heaslip/K. Mueller-Heaslip)
“I will not be taught my business by a bunch of pipsqueaks. I am an electric eel in a pool of flatfish.” Dame Edith Sitwell, famously eccentric poet, novelist, and socialite, has come to lecture the Rosedale Ladies’ Self-Improvement League on her life and works, and to sell her autobiography in verse, Electric Eel. A touch too much Valium and a little too much vodka, however, cause her to reveal more of her life and works than she originally intended.
