Sad. But sorta Circle of Life-ish.

Because, of course, this set comes down so the next set goes up. (I saw its fascinating model at the strike for mine.) In a particularly life-cycle way, some of my hand-carved brick was saved so that it can be used to build someone else's set elsewhere. I saved the brick fireplace arch to be an insta-fireplace on some future set of my own. Plus a lot of curtain fabric ditto. But then, the screens we used for this set had already been used for a locally filmed television show, before being gifted to Kitchen Dog. Much of the furniture (borrowed from two other theaters) has appeared in many earlier shows and will appear in yet more... some of them mine. That's kind of nice to look forward to.
In theater, what goes around comes around and around and around...
