#83 Walt Spangler in 1: the podcast

    • Performing Arts

Bake some spongecake, pull out your six string and spend a balmy summer weekend with 'Escape to Margaritaville' Scenic Designer Walt Spangler! On this week's new episode, Walt is telling us about the genesis of his tropical design that included a research trip to Key West, an actual Jimmy Buffet concert, and how the design changed over time from it's La Jolla premier and it's multi-city tour leading up to Broadway. Cory and Walt also talk about his design for the whimsical 'Tuck Everlasting' and how his iconic set for 'Desire Under the Elms' came to be with giant boulders and a house floating over the stage. Walt takes us through his design process through script sketches, model and sculptural work, and recounts presenting his first ideas to directors like Casey Nicholaw and Robert Falls. And hear the true life story of how a new piece of scenery was conceived, built, painted, and installed over the weekend of Margaritaville's final previews. Grab something cold and fruity  and let the sound of this week's chat fill your private cabana. (you did reserve a cabana right??)
