Parallel Exit – “The Final Reel”

The Final Reel is inspired by the iconic films Sherlock Jr and The Purple Rose of Cairo. An eccentric historian discovers the holy grail of silent films: the final reel of a forgotten classic thought to be lost to history. As he presents the film for the first time in a hundred years, his bumbling assistant accidentally steps into the movie and falls in love with the heroine. The two-love birds step back into the modern world and the heroine is left to make a fateful decision – one that changes every night of performance with the help of the audience.

Concept by Mike Dobson, Joel JeskeMark Lonerganand Scott McCord

Directed by Mark Lonergan

Scenic and lighting design by Maruti Evans

Costumes by Oana Botez

Projections by Daniel Vatsky

Original Musical Score by Ben Model

It was a delightful, comical and well-produced show! Produced in association with City Tech TheaterWorks. Here are a few still photographs I was able to capture while really enjoying the show.

The show is over but hopefully it will come back to be performed again!
