But his sinister alter-ego is never far away.


The fantastical set by Mark Marcante:
Lobby of the 43rd Street Hotel

Reception desk of the 43rd Street Hotel
The stage left doors set up many farcical entrances.
Doorway into the Hotel, where most of the voices seemed to originate.
Pelican's typwriter and tape recorder
Elevator that Chort entered from.
Downstage right chairs, where Chort devoured his sandwich of Beluga Caviar and hard boiled egg.
