Getting Plastered: The Masks of Marie

For those of you who experienced Marie last weekend, you know the haunting effect that Tom Varani and Andi Pliner’s masks had on the production. Not only did they illustrate the unstoppable march of revolutionary fervor but they also highlighted how The Queen felt–alone and helpless at the end of her reign.

Crafting such emotionally potent pieces of art was no easy task and involved hours of casting, sanding, recasting and painting. We caught up with the artists behind the masks to see how it all happened.

If you have yet to see Marie, time’s running out! Our final shows are this coming weekend. You can view showtimes and purchase tickets here.
