Why, hello, there, world! It’s been a while, hasn’t it?
Today, I went on location for a photo shoot for the next Central Square Theater production, From Orchids to Octopi, starting March 31. Since the play involves an evolving mural of epic proportions, the artist of said mural, David Fichter, had to find a space in which he could work. So somewhere on the Somerville/Cambridge line, we found an undeveloped office space with fabulous natural light and an amazing view of the greater Boston skylines, and went to work.
From Orchids to Octopi is commissioned by the National Institutes of Health in celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Origin of Species by Charles Darwin. It’s written by local playwright, Melinda Lopez, and features the process of creation - and the evolution of our art and ourselves - with Charles Darwin commenting along the way!
And the brains behind the mural? David Fichter himself:
Tickets for From Orchids to Octopi are on sale now, but if you like, I can possibly dig up a discount code. But this show expects to sell out, so I’d get tickets ASAP to be sure you get in!
