Pop! with Anthony Rapp
For City Theatre
This was a relatively new musical written about Andy Warhol and his shooting in 1968. The story really focuses on how the shooting effected Andy Warhol. As in any new musical there is much to go over. Many designs were introduced and thrown out with the bathwater. Revisions upon revisions. Finally we had a design and the rehearsal process started. The writers were in rehearsals the entire time right up to press opening. The tech process was long and arduous but in the end we had a very fine product. Audiences and critics enjoyed this production. Like most new pieces, this needs a little work but when/where that happens I am not sure.
