The Challenges of Designing Costumes for HDTV

via thecostumerag.com You only need to take a look in your local department store to see the immense size and quality of modern television screens aimed at the common family. Ultra-high-definition has given every broadcast a strangely smooth quality full of contrast and impeccable detail. Unfortunately one of the production departments with the biggest tasks with rising to this new standard of television is the costume department who, if our poll on the state of the costume industry is anything to go by, probably can’t afford to see their work in 4K glory. Besides more intense scrutiny for details, the new technology requires intense lighting that can easily bleach out much of the costume work. Colours have to be bold, which also meansweathering and ageing effects have to be exaggerated. I...

Parts of it remain without electricity, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency remains on the ground.

But while the devastation is no longer front-page news, these theatre artists are determined to keep a spotlight shining on their island. Read on to learn how they are lending a creative helping hand—and find out how you can give back too.

Thousands of WA Students See Hamilton for $10 (& Perform Their Own Work, too!)

BY PAIGE CORNWELL via www.seattletimes.com Toward the end of the first act of “Hamilton,” characters sing the line, “Immigrants, we get the job done.” It’s common for audiences watching the critically acclaimed musical to react to the “Yorktown” lyric, but for this audience, it seemed to carry more weight for the crowd. Inside the Paramount Theatre Thursday afternoon, 2,800 high-school students roared. Many of the audience members were children of immigrants or immigrants themselves, like the titular Alexander Hamilton, who was born in the West Indies and became one of America’s Founding Fathers. “Hamilton: An American Musical” is playing at the Paramount through March 18. Tickets are hard to come by, and prices range from $250 to more than $1,000. But on Thursday afternoon, the students f...

Get to Know Montana Repertory Theatre

BY ALLISON CONSIDINE via  www.americantheatre.org One of the few major theatre between Minneapolis and Seattle has grown from a statewide traveling troupe to a national touring company. MISSOULA, MONT.: In 1893, the University of Montana was built along the Clark Fork River at the foot of Mount Sentinel in the town of Missoula. The settlement of Missoula, once known for its mills and lumber industry, became home to the main campus of the state university, which is now one of the city’s largest employers. Montana Repertory Theatre resides at the university and tours plays throughout the state and across the country. We talked to artistic director Gregory Johnson to learn more about producing theatre in the “Big Sky Country” state. Who founded the company, when, and why? The company was foun...

Nice Work if You Can Get It: Being a Volunteer Usher on Broadway

BY JOANNE KAUFMAN via www.nytimes.com Greet audience members, take tickets, work the concession stands, run the elevator. Point the way to seats, restrooms, box offices and exits. These are some of the tasks of a volunteer usher at theaters across New York City. The lure: a free ticket. The competition: increasingly fierce. Richard Ponce, the house manager of the Helen Hayes Theater, said he has 250 more requests than slots he needs to fill for the 10-week run of “Lobby Hero,” which opens March 26, and has Chris Evans and Michael Cera in starring roles. “It used to be this sort of secret thing,” Mr. Ponce said of the volunteer program. “Now there are hundreds and hundreds more people who want to do it.” Comparatively rare at Broadway houses like the Hayes, volunteer ushers have long staffe...
