CAROUSEL

Unrealized Studio Project Director: Susan Schulman


Music by Richard Rodgers and Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II

Carousel, set between the years 1875 and 1990, is about the redemption of a man who in death learns to end the cycle of abuse he perpetuated during his lifetime. My design explores the grey areas of abuser as victim through contrasting the harsh realities of the Coast of Maine with the glittery fantasy escapism of the world of the Carousel.
