Patience

1995

Patience

LOGON's final Gilbert & Sullivan operetta ,"Patience", in 1995 marked a changing of the guard on the backstage team. Richard Bennett and Bob Gilmour produced, bringing in Daniel Schwartzman as our new Musical Director although Director Helen Eleasari and Stage Manager Hadass Zmora provided continuity.
Helen's concept of moving the setting to a modern shopping mall with dragoons becoming marketing executives and Patience, the milk-maid, working in an ice-cream parlour, provided Yardena Alkan, our set designer and Melanie Lombard, our costume designer with opportunities for much creative inspiration.
For the first time we added a third Beer Sheva performance and a simultaneous translation into Hebrew on a super-titles screen.
