Cleveland Play House

While at Cleveland Play House, I collaborated with Phaedra Scott on lobby exhibits for the productions Five Guys Named Moe and The Pianist of Willesden Lane.

“Jukebox Royalty” was an appropriately-named interactive exhibit for the jukebox musical Five Guys Named Moe, which features the songs of popular jazz hitmaker Louis Jordan. Audience members could listen to a playlist of songs written by and influenced by Jordan, courtesy of the theatre’s very own jukebox. They could also read about why each song was chosen.

“Light in the Dark: Stories of Survival Through Art” was an exhibit for Mona Golabek’s one-woman production The Pianist of Willesden Lane. Based on Golabek’s book The Children of Willesden Lane about her mother Lisa Jura’s story as a child who came to England on the Kindertransport during the early days of the Holocaust and World War Two. Jura, a gifted pianist, was able to survive by holding onto her love of music. Audience members could read other narratives of survivors from this time period who were able to use art to persevere.
