Lilka -Toy Theater Cabinet
Here are some images of a toy theater I was pleased to designed for The Last Act of Lilka Kadison, by Abbie Phillips and Directed by Dan Bonnell at the Falcon Theater in Los Angeles, in April 2014. I designed and built the theater as well as the shows that were performed inside of it. Included here are concept drawings, the cabinet and the images of the puppet show contained within.
