Building Wings

If you've followed MadShag for the last few years, you know how brilliant Allen Cutler is; our resident set and prop designer, Allen has given us the spooky confines of the House of Usher and the bombed-out war shelters hiding Edward II. The propmaster of Hartford Stage Company, he's designed for many of America's leading theatre companies, including the Berkshire Theatre Festival, George Street Playhouse, La Jolla Playhouse, San Diego Repertory Theatre, as well as the Anne Meara’s Off-Broadway hit comedy Down The Garden Paths.

Allen is doing double duty at the moment -- he's building our enormous, 12-foot angel wings while ALSO designing the latest show for nationally-renowned drag performer Varla Jean Merman. Previously, Allen and Varla have collaborated on her national tours of Girl With A Pearl Necklace, I'm Not Paying For This and Anatomically Incorrect. The latest, Hush Up, Sweet Charlotte!, has just finished a run in San Francisco and will open soon in New Orleans. We thought we'd share some glamour shots of Varla Jean, and wish Allen the best on his other show!
