Mad Anthonyâ€™s â€œStory of My Lifeâ€ Recognized by LCT
Panelists for the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) have recognized lighting designer Denny Thomas and Scenic Designer Mary Slocum for their work on Mad Anthony Theatreâ€™s production of The Story of My Life.
The Story of My Life is a moving musical that follows the friendship of Alvin and Thomas, two men from a small town. These lifelong friends are reunited after Alvinâ€™s mysterious death. In the abstract world of his mind, Thomas struggles to write Alvinâ€™s eulogy while recounting the many turns their lives have taken since meeting as children.
Panelists praised Mary Slocumâ€™s set design, â€œa powerful all-white bookcase that was an effective backdrop for the action,â€ and the lighting director and operator, Denny Thomas, who â€œused his lights to dramatic effect.â€
