A Life In The Theater by Michael Arthur


An "outtake" from my recent Hedwig Sketchbook report for Vanity Fair. This is actually the first drawing I did the week of tech. It shows the stage manager and a costumer in the house, watching as John Cameron Mitchell rehearsed. The costumer ended up being the audience stand in whenever Mitchell practiced his "in the house" moments.

The remarkable Andrew Rannells in rehearsal last week as he  assumed the golden pumps of Hedwig on Broadway. I got to sit in and draw at the Belasco Theater on Tuesday and Friday as the company fine tuned the transition.
