Here's a photo taken by our hardworking set builder Dean McBride. (Someone who shows up at 5:00 a.m. to build deserves my official Hardworking! badge for sure.)
That's me sorting through comics to dress the Comic Shop... one of seven locations crammed into the MAC's black box. Just barely showing to the left of me is the Apartment Stoop; I'm sitting (worn out) on the Comic Shop floor; behind me is the outside door to the Hospital; then the Hospital Waiting Room; to its right the Coffee Shop patio; and in the foreground the Living Room. (The seventh setting is a reveal.)
At this instant the Hospital sign isn't up yet and neither are the Coffee Shop's chalk board drawings. Phew!

Now the chalk gets drawn...

"Early or Latte" the set gets finished... As one of the last duties, the faithful set builder showed up at 5:00 a.m. again to tidy up the edges of my faux plank and concrete and to paint the rest of the stage floor black.
Opening is tonight! Thinner Than Water by Melissa Ross at Kitchen Dog Theater.
