Behind the Smile by Skyler Tarnas


Murmuration Theatre Co, First Flight Showcase, the TANK



Director-Producer-Costume Design-Sound Design. Behind the Smile is a new play by Skyler Tarnas, which premiered at the TANK January 17th, 2024. It's a short comedic play about high art, what we value, and what happens when we accidentally destroy The Louvre's Mona Lisa. As a director, I encouraged actors to have fun, keep experimenting, and embrace the absurdity. I established status and stakes through costume design, as well as urging actors to play to the extremes. Actors: Andy Rowell (Trip), Da'Mar Levi (Cindy), Tim Dietrich (Lindenberg), Anna Zigmond (Vera). Sasha Smith, Production Stage Manager.
