Technically, Aurora put their small space to excellent use, as usual. In this staging in the round, Sand often had her back to me, which gave me a chance to admire the gorgeous paneling of her dressing gown. A tip of Flaubert’s excellent tasseled hat to Anna R. Oliver for her costuming prowess. Annie Smart’s sets, where every tchotchke fit the characters and time, completed the period atmosphere.
Above all, Dear Master made me want to pick up another George Sand novel. I think I’ll go do just that.
