Dear Prologue Supporters,
I hope this finds you well, safe and secure. In these trying times, one thing we knew we could keep doing and doing well, is our Prologue Lecture Series. Over the next month, we will be recording interviews with stellar guests in a similar way that you have grown accustomed- an interview about an important and perhaps overlooked aspect of American theatre, followed by questions from our audience. I’ve invited students and faculty to virtually attend when I record these so that there are great questions during the Q and A.
Our first installment is an extraordinary theater designer named Jeff Sugg. Jeff was going to visit us in May and I was so looking forward to it. He is a projection designer and one of those “behind the scenes” artists whose talent is amazing and too often not recognized as publicly as it should be. Jeff just finished a show at the National Theatre in London and a lil project on Broadway called Tina: The Tina Turner Musical.
I hope you enjoy. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for a talk with Tony winning director Rachel Chavkin, props designer Jay Duckworth (a returning favorite) and a couple more surprises. Even though we would rather do all of this in person, we hope that you will be excited to meet and learn from some of our friends in the theatre; in a digital format, but we anticipate welcoming them in Colorado Springs as soon as possible.
