Video: Inside look at the making of 'The Glass Menagerie'

To mark every DCPA Theatre Company opening, we take you backstage for an inside look at the making of the show.

Here, DCPA technical and creative staff offer insight about the scenic design, lighting, properties and costume challenges in staging Tennessee Williams’ classic, The Glass Menagerie. Technical Director Eric Rouse is joined by Charles MacLeod, Robin Payne and Meghan Anderson Doyle for our tour.

Learn just how many cubes of light make up the floor of the Wingfield family living room; how the team uses projections to make sure the absent patriarch stays ever-present throughout the play; why the costumes are more suggestive of a memory than a factual representation of St. Louis in 1937, and much more.

Watch next for our video on the making of Frankenstein, with a first performance on Sept. 30. Video by John Moore and David Lenk for the DCPA NewsCenter.
