Bringing The Passion Project in from New York involves more than just flying in Reid Farrington and Laura K. Nicoll. It actually takes a massive rebuild of our stage! The whole staff is pitching in (including yours truly) to make it happen, and production manager Frank Nickel was good enough to document the progress:

The new home for our first couple rows.
Apprent Shay makes things look a little nicer in the back stairwell.

If any of you have seen the back entrance to the theatre before, you know this is a HUGE improvement.
Of course, what's the point in spending a day painting a staircase if you can't then paint a birthday greeting overtop?
