The production team includes Stage Manager Jon Ravenscroft, Set Designer Joe Schermoly, Lighting Designer Brandon Wardell, Sound Designer & Composer Thomas Dixon, Costume Designer Emily McConnell, Dialect Coach Kathy Logelin, Production Manager Catherine Allen, and Assistant Director Leah Raidt.
From the press release: “When you can have whatever you want, whenever you want it, what do you ask for next? When you’ve pushed every boundary until there’s nothing left to hold you in, how do you find your way back home? Birdland is a sexy, searing exploration of empathy and the impact of unchecked privilege.”
BIRDLAND runs April 5th – May 12th. For more information visit steeptheatre.com.
