The Picture of Dorian Gray

The Picture of Dorian Gray, designed by James Kronzer, directed by Blake Robison.  This show was staged on a double revolve turntable: a 18-foot-diameter inner turntables surrounded by a 6-foot-wide (30-foot-diameter) donut turntable.  The inner three columns shown above were mounted to the inner revolve, and the outer two columns were mounted on the outer revolve.

This white model shows the set and the different wall pieces that would rotate around each other.

The two turntables could rotate in either direction, and completely independent of each other.  This created a large number of interesting scene transitions, and allowed furniture for future scenes to be prepared upstage of the walls and revealed during the transition.

There was also a series of pegs on the wall that allowed for different artwork to be displayed to help establish different scenes.
