Making stage props can be challenging and fun at the same time. Scouring the surplus stores off Colfax in Denver is always an adventure! There's a scene in WYSIWYG that we needed a device to highlight the faces of the characters while they are online. It had to be simple, bullet proof, look like a phone and have a bit more luminosity; of course, Denise gets leopard skin. Remember the scene in "Suspicion" where Hitchcock puts a light in a glass of milk!

It seems like these days people are on their devices all the time and the characters in WYSIWYG are certainly no exception. They're always checking-in online to see their messages, latest news and upcoming events. For our NYC run we decided to nest and print our post cards and flyers on foam core to simulate the plethora of devices being used by people today.
