TheatreWorld's backdrops, plus your ideas, for your production of Bells are Ringing? It's a perfect relationship! This sweet romantic comedy is set in Midcentury New York City and much of the show takes place inside the offices of Susanswerphone. Create the perfect vintage office interior with STYLIZED HIGHRISE or CONTEMPORARY OFFICE INTERIOR. As a bonus, you can swap out set pieces to use either of these drops for Jeff's apartment or the nightclub scene as well. For the various NYC street scenes, opt for EAST SIDE STREET - B. MILLION DOLLAR PENTHOUSE has all the glitz and glamour--not to mention a killer skyline view--for the party scene. CENTRAL PARK and VICTORIAN PARK are both great choices for Ella and Jeff's date in Central Park. If you have a particularly elaborate set, use one of TheatreWorld's skyline drops, such as LIGHTS OF NYC, to remind your audience exactly where this story is set. With TheatreWorld, your production of Bells are Ringing will look "Better Than a Dream"!
