A big show with a lot of scenery. More fun with perspective. My design colors admittedly owe much to Tony Walton. The background for Times Square is a painted profile with lights. The mission interior has a perspective painted tin ceiling, but it is just on the flat of the wall. The Macy's entrances are on a soft drop. We used a painted show curtain I had used for Babes in Arms - all folds are painted.
