Props - South Pacific


Presented at Lincoln Center, this won a Tony for Set Design!

Summer 2008

Set design by Michael Yeargan, Properties by Kathy Fabian

I worked on South Pacific closely with Kathy Fabian at Propstar. I managed rehearsal and built a lot of the specialty props. This was a prop heavy show, and I can’t even possibly mention all the props that my hand touched. Here’s some things I actually got some photos of.

You can see the ‘not heavy at all’ weightlifter bar that I made being modelled by the lovely Jen Lutz above. A lovely local comic shop donated us some pdf’s of covers that we made for the sailors to wave about. And we made leis from fake flowers and twine. We also made toy guns to appear as though they had been constructed from newspaper for a sort of pilgrim number.
