ITP Alumnus and currently Adjunct Faculty member Andrew Lazarow will be doing Projection Design for a new musical, Head Over Heels, produced by Gwenyth Paltrow and directed by Tisch Alumnus Michael Mayer. The design will feature intricate projection mapping to create optical illusions and highlight the show's music, featuring songs from The Go Go's.
Head Over Heels will have a limited run in San Francisco from April 10th-May 6th, before moving to the Hudson Theater on 44th Street beginning June 23rd. Based on Sir Philip Sidney's The Arcadia, the show is described as "an unpredictable, Elizabethan romp about a royal family that must prevent an oracle's prophecy of doom. In order to save their beloved kingdom, the family embarks on an extravagant journey wrought with mistaken identities, jealous lovers, sexual awakening, scandal and self-discovery, where everything (and everyone) is not quite what it seems."
Among the cast on Broadway is Peppermint of RuPaul's Drag Race, who will be the first trans-woman actress to create a principle role on Broadway.
