Hello my most esteemed readers,
It’s time to put your party pants on. Sideshow moved Theories of the Sun into Theater Wit this weekend. Behold the glory of our outdoor signage!
Some of you may not know this, but Sideshow Box Office Manager Heather Irwin has a young child, Baby Thomas (or as we refer to him, Baby T). Theories will be Baby T’s THIRD Sideshow production. He is currently working as our unofficial assistant costume designer, and while he’s just amazing during the brainstorming process, he tends to spit up or chew on the final costume pieces. So you know, you gotta be careful about that. I asked him once about why he felt the need to chew on every single button on a three piece suit, but he told me to BACK OFF, because it was part of his process. If he wasn’t such a brilliant assistant, I would have been upset. Oh, artists.
Scandal broke out at load-in because Baby T, who we THOUGHT was loyal only to Sideshow, decided that we were just not paying him enough and applied for a job as the new Theater Wit janitor. Beware, these next few photos are SHOCKING.
Unbelievable. I feel like there must be some child labor laws being broken, since he’s not even 2 yet. But Baby T begged me not to call the authorities – he believes this role is key to his future development, and how dare I take away an opportunity for his personal growth. I said ok buddy, you know what’s up. And then I totally told on him to his mommy.
Either way, check out the stunning costumes in Theories of the Sun, designed by the talented David Hyman with assistance from the one and only, Thomas. Get your tickets TODAY as previews start Sunday, September 5th, for only $10!
Until next time,
