Machinal / by Walls Trimble

In a series of fortuitous events, I found myself at NYU Tisch’s dress rehearsal for Machinal by Sophie Treadwell. One of my first post-grad shoots was another production of Machinal at Northwestern University, so it was a lovely treat to return to this story about a young woman fighting for a life of meaning and freedom. Amazingly, the lighting designer Krista Smith worked on this show, too (I’ve photographed her work before here and here), and we finally got to meet!

Machinal features undergrad students from the Lee Strasberg Institute and is directed by Matt Dickson.

More info and tickets here. Thank you, Blayze Teicher for bringing me in!
