The BOOM Theatre Co. had a very simple, classic aesthetic. We had a bare stage, and most costumes were simple chitons. As we worked through rehearsals I assumed this was due greatly in part to the fact that we were a very new company, this was only the second show we were doing (my first) and the collection of costumes and props we had was small. However, it worked! It suggested a vast space far easier than a set would have I think.
Looking back on the production I have to say I remember the rehearsal space most fondly. BOOM uses Harford County's Historic Tudor Hall, the ancestral home of famous American dramatist and assassin John Wilkes Booth. It was just so appropriate to do theatre under the watchful eyes of the Booths. Not that it wasn't very creepy! Most of us were convinced the place was haunted. Leif (our very own Prometheus) is a bit of a ghost hunter, and we often talked about how cool it would be to search the place. We never did, but perhaps that just adds to the mystery of the place.
My favorite moment of the whole rehearsal period took place in Tudor Hall, I stood facing a window and raised my arms in the air as I performed one of Io's monologues, and as I said the word "Zeus" a flash of lightening lit up the window. I don't think anyone else saw since they had no reason to be looking up like I was, but man was that invigorating.
