WYSIWYG Character Backstories

Creating character backstories is always fun, but let's not forget it's also a very important part of the development process of any theatrical work. A ‘backstory’ is a literary device dramatists use to give their character and story arcs a sense of history. Backstories imagine characters’ past lives, environments and the events that take place before the main narrative of the story.

Here's a link to a whole section on our website for WYSIWYG character backstories. Over the next few months we'll plan to add in-depth backstory for each specific character here (on the blog) too, but for now you can navigate to the complete list of character backstories by following link above.

2018 NYC Planet Connections Festival Scrapbook

We've been collecting all sort of pictures over the last few months related to our NYC Debut  of WYSIWYG. What a great experience taking a musical to the Big Apple turned out to be. The process all started back in early Spring and ends the end of August. Two weeks in New York with old friends, with new friends and of course the fabulous shows and all the tourist attractions. Thank you Planet Connections, Ackerman, and all our NYC fans for the support! WYSIWYG :)

Video Excerpts from the 10th Planet

Here's a short video of several scenes from our performance run at Teatro LATEA. We had plenty of footage from our shows during the festival since we placed a video camera in different locations each night. There was one night when the electric piano wasn't available so we used an acoustic upright.
