It's a samovar base!
Last year, I was Columbia's thesis props and costume manager DRA.
Every fall, one, or several, of the directors needs a samovar for a Chekov production.
A difficult prop to procure, though Columbia does now have one in stock.
But just think of the possibilities of a samovar lamp...
A hilarious mash-up and dramaturg chic.
My wonderful madre is a librarian.
Apparently the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree ,
I chose to be a dramaturg.
While I was home for the holidays,
she told me about the library hotel.
Their website reads:
"The Library Hotel NY near Grand Central Station in New York City is the first unique hotel in Manhattan ever to offer its guests over 6,000 volumes of books organized throughout the hotel by the Dewey Decimal System.*
Each of the 10 guestroom floors honor one of the 10 categories of the DDC, and each of the 60 rooms are uniquely adorned with a collection of books and art exploring a distinctive topic within the category it belongs to."
There is a performing arts room that I want to stay in...
What to get the dramaturg who has everything?
I don't think you can go wrong with a notebook!
I love this super sweet Christian Lacroix journal.
what's on your holiday wish list dramaturgs?
Let me know!
