Meet Sam Sewell, Sound Designer for Supergravity and the Eleventh Dimension! Sam drives a pedicab around Boston, but says that her dream job would be wandering storyteller (if those existed) and that theatre is the next best thing!
If theatre is not your full-time job, what do you do on the side?
I ride a gigantic tricycle around Boston that carry tourists mostly to Fenway Park.
What has been your favorite thing about working on the play so far?
Hanging out with the Vagabond Crew and chances to discuss the play in-depth.
What do you think is the most challenging thing about your design for this show? Why are you looking forward to making it work?
Getting the right feel to accurately represent where we are in the play. The lighting and sound transitions have to convey whole changes in time and reality and have to be seamless in order for this play to work. Lucas [Supergravity Lighting Designer] and I have our work cut out for us. I’m looking forward to making it work because we can create something awesome if we pull it off.
What totally confuses you about physics?
The complexity of the formulas and the whole other language you have to learn in order to work in the field.
Are you listening to any music to prepare for this show?
