A thriller by Ira Levin
Driected by Pat Murphy
Citadel Theatre Company, fall 2014
My first professional design gig!
I was unfamiliar with Deathtrap, but I was familiar with creepmeister Ira Levin. My initial brainstorms consequently involved a lot of little tightly composed jagged jazzy waltzes. Then, I sat down for the reading and realized, "Oh, wait, this isn't Rosemary's Baby. This is Clue!"
Deathtrap keeps topping itself until it can't possibly go any further...until it does. So, stingers galore and thunder aplenty. And this little ooky tune, underscoring the phony (?) psychic's search for bad juju.
