Here's a little set photoessay, followed by pictures of the dress from hell.
When you start out, the walls are taped off on the floor, and the director puts stuff where real set pieces will eventually go, for example: The Orange Home Depot bucket was the TV. We spare no expense at ALT.
Then the walls start going up and you get a more firm sense of spatial relations and some permanent set pieces.

First layer of paint and kitchen cabinets.
A sofa! Finally! A hideous lamp in the corner!
Starting to look like a home. From left: Mark (my co-star) Jeff, (director), Nick (facing away from the camera) and Joseph.
Me in the dressing room taking a picture of the dress from hell AFTER last night's dress rehearsal. I won. Everyone LOVES that dress. Ain't no scrap of silk besting me, yo.
