June 28th, 2014 7:30 PM:

Opening Night of FATHERS OF THE DARK KNIGHT proved to be a STUNNING performance from my entire cast and crew!

What a journey this has been! The final product was more exciting than I could ever have dreamed!! Seeing my vision finally come to life on stage was a feeling I don't have the words to adequately describe!!


I still get goosebumps when I recall the opening overture of Act II (after intermission is over)...

The audience re-enters the auditorium to a GRAND orchestral score blaring from the sound system. At just the right cymbal crash, the BAT-SYMBOL projection appears on the closed stage curtain and majestically begins to sweep the side walls and ceiling of the space. Moments later, the curtain parts to reveal Police Commissioner James Gordon standing on the rooftop of Police Headquarters, signalling for the Dynamic Duo with his enormous Bat-Signal searchlight!! Whew!!!

You can actually hear the audience gasp with excitement each time that sequence plays out.

Naturally, The Commissioner's summons leads to a somewhat... shocking death trap... set for the Caped Crusaders by Edward THE RIDDLER Nygma!

But just when things look worst for The Dynamic Duo, The Riddler is attacked and defeated by a mysterious red-haired girl in a Bat-suit...

... leaving the police and our heroes baffled!

From months of rehearsals in my cramped living room...



Image







... to weeks of set construction in my back courtyard...



Image





... to the endless hair and makeup tests



Image







... to tests of the BAT rod-puppet for the fateful scene in Bruce Wayne's study...



Image







... to the tedium of load-in...



Image







...to fight rehearsals, selfies, and shenannegans in the dressing room...



Image



Image



Image



Image



Image



Image



Image



Image



Image





... to rehearsals on stage...



Image



Image





... even in the shadow of the half-completed BAT-SIGNAL...



Image



Image





... to the final bows at the end of our show...



Image







... this has been THE experience of my life!
