TheatreWorld?s LES MISÉRABLES Signature Series of theatrical backdrops has received much attention from our customers and several industry reporters since being announced in November 2011. The initial series of backdrops will consist of four themed backdrops designed to support productions of the Victor Hugo classic novel turned into a musical theatre spectacular.
The sketches below are working renditions, not the finals. The actual hand-painted Tavern, Cottage Interior, and European-style town, are currently in production and scheduled for delivery by the end of April. Additionally, the very unique Barricade themed backdrop, which will allow LES MISÉRABLES directors an easy and creative way to stage the pivotal barricade scenes, is going through final pre-production modifications and will be available by the end of May.
The LES MISÉRABLES Signature Series of backdrops are new creations, designed by TheatreWorld?s creative teams. As you can tell from the sketches, the backdrops are very detailed and period realistic with some artistic flare. They are being painted with much attention to colorization and audience visual appeal. Two additional LES MISÉRABLES themed, scenic backdrops are scheduled for design in the fall, once we receive more feedback from our panel of theatrical directors and they have had time to evaluate customer responses to the initial series of backdrops.
TheatreWorld?s LES MISÉRABLES themed backdrops will initially be available for rental in 40? by 18? only. Again, response and customer requests will dictate when and if the themed backdrops from this series will be offered in 25? by 15?.
TheatreWorld will be recommending several of the LES MISÉRABLES themed scenic backdrops for consideration in other theatrical productions as well. For example, these new Signature Series backdrops are suitable for a number of musical theatre productions including MAN OF LA MANCHA, FIDDLER ON THE ROOF, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST and more, as well as traditional plays including ROBIN HOOD and THE THREE MUSKETEERS.
As always, we look forward to working with customers to enrich their presentations and help them constantly improve their production values with TheatreWorld?s Signature Series of scenic backdrop offerings.
