Oh yes. I vaguely recall hearing about this play when it was announced and some speculation on how you could pull off diving on stage.
The first picture looks pretty and would have a good effect but I don't really understand the second one.
I feel some second hand embarrassment for the actors....

The water effects look pretty cool. Although I'm sure the main draw is the "Beautiful Shirtless Boys: The Stage Play" premise... Very Happy

As cool as this is, i can't help but feel there is some low-key embarrassment from the actors. I mean, they're pretending to swim....it's a cool premise though!!

I think it's a bit awkward to see swimming movements out of the water, but the improvised water effects do make the scene impressively cool to the blue. Wink

I love how creative theater in general can be when it comes to implementing interesting stage design.

Missed a treat by not having the "water" be buff men in blue morphsuits carrying the actors.
