THE LAST FIVE YEARS - AFTER HOURS THEATRE COMPANY - 2019
LA STAGE ALLIANCE OVATION AWARD 2019 - LIGHTING DESIGN, INTIMATE THEATER (WINNER)
DIRECTION: KARI HAYTER
SCENIC DESIGN: EFREN DELGADILLO JR.
COSTUME DESIGN: ELIZABETH COX
SOUND DESIGN: CRICKET MYERS
"Design elements are strong all around (Andrew Schmedake’s calling card was definitely visible in the lighting design), which is part of After Hours Theatre Company’s strength as a growing group."
-Vanessa Cate, Stage Raw
"The show itself is a triumph, from Delgadillo Jr.’s beautiful stage, to the Cuckoo’s Nest alum Andrew Shemedake’s magnificent lighting design, to Cricket S. Meyers full, resonant sound design, and the expert execution of the live music from Music Director Jennifer Lin. The production as a whole feels so complete, every possibility considered and designed for – the end result is a truly sensational presentation of a well-loved piece of theatre."
-Cristen Brinkerhoff, Haunting.net
"Costume designer Elizabeth A. Cox provides the two stars with plenty of character-appropriate outfits, Andrew Schmedake lights the Multisensory Experience quite stunningly indeed, Shen Heckel furnishes plenty of clever props (including an Anita wig that gives Cathy an extra laugh in “A Summer In Ohio”), and scent designer Christoff Visscher sends assorted aromas wafting in to enhance The Last Five Years’ shifting moods."
