Marianna Sanchez's design for WAR as seen at the Yale Rep. Marianna was my design assistant on my Yale Rep production of STONES IN HIS POCKETS and I am so happy to see her work on this stage after three long years in New Haven.

how many portals can you draw in 50 minutes on a crowded subway car? The answer is seven. I'm trying to figure out the portal for my Nutcracker. Rest assured I'll be using none of the above designs. Drawing on the subway is good for loose sketches-- not so good for rectilinear architecture.
