First Day of Rehearsals of HOLD THESE TRUTHS with the Epic Theater Ensemble

Strange to be a whole continent away here in Los Angeles while my HOLD THESE TRUTHS team starts rehearsals with the Epic Theatre Ensemble for our New York premiere, but Joel de la Fuente was kind enough to snap a photo of “Team Hirabayashi NYC” for me! Our designers are Mikiko Suzuki McAdams, set design; Cat Tate Starmer, lighting design, Margaret E. Weedon, costume design; and Daniel Kluger, sound design. Also Rebecca Spinac and Ryan Parow as stage managers, Natalie Martin, assistant director, and Jameson Croasdale, production manager. And of course, helming it all, our fantastic director Lisa Rothe.

Mikiko’s circular set design, also pictured here, was inspired by the idea of a Quaker meeting in the round, as Gordon was a lifelong Quaker. Love the different styles and colors of chairs, and the warm, intimate glow she conveys so simply.

I will be joining “Team Hirabayashi NYC” at the end of the month for an extended New York stay. Can’t wait!
