For a quick memory look at the two previous Cyprus Avenue shows
Cyprus Avenue (Oct 2011) - White Recital Hall
Cyprus Avenue (Sept 2010) - The Folly Theater
(These links are repeated in the W/H links at the bottom)

A few pictures for an early look during rehearsals
I'm not sure whether I will have performance dress pictures. There
is no dress, though I do have pictures from the Thursday run with Bill Shapiro in studio
(PAC-108). So that may have to do either for now or for this show as I
will be pretty fully occupied running video for this show.
My still photos are separate, and for me, though I also provide them for the company.
