The comment inspired this week's HNT post -- a shot that was taken on the set of one of the larger plays (in terms of cast size, set, lighting and production crew) that I had worked on when part of the company: Balm in Gilead. The play was written by Lanford Wilson, but the director of the play added wonderfully fitting musical interludes written by Lou Reed and John Cale into the production. Performed by three beautiful women and sung in modified tempos the music was haunting and disturbing and added wonderfully to the overall ambiance of the play.
This is a shot of four of the crew hanging out behind the bar on the set.

Good times! Hard to believe that was . . . yikes . . . almost 20 years ago . . .
Here are a couple of other shots from the play, taken during one of the earlier rehearsals.
