backstage pt.11


Seeing that Melissa, my stage manager, has given me an all-access go-ahead to snap shots during the performance, every opportunity I get, I'm there lurking in the darkness. I feel like the Phantom of this Chinese Opera. My role, though important to the show, is only 6 minutes of the entire 2 1/2 hours. Kinda like Judi Dench in Shakespeare In Love, though I doubt I'll be winning any Oscars. That leaves me lots of time inbetween to be the unofficial archivist.

2 shows more and it's all over. Of the hundreds of shots, I've compiled close to 150 of the best which I'll be putting on disc as a farewell present to each and everyone in the production. Here's is one of the shots. Soo Suan, the female lead, as she waits for our daily briefing to begin.
