VIDEO: Everybody Drinks the Same Water
Many people talk about supporting local artists and Miami Theater Center has presented the perfect opportunity with an original production co-written and directed by hometown favorite Stephanie Ansin.
Set in ancient Spain, Everybody Drinks the Same Water touches on religious tension in the context of medieval murder mystery.
In this piece, we hear Ansin talk about the process behind the production. We also hear from co-author and designer, Fernando Calzadilla, on his inspiration behind the original costumes which combine the essence of the period mixed with a little Alexander McQueen and Dolce & Gabbana.
