Before the curtain even goes up on Nixon in China, audience members will get an eyeful. On the scrim at the front of the house will be hundreds and hundreds of Red Army faces staring right back at them.
This past weekend, a photoshoot took place at our wardrobe department. Nixon in China's Projection Designer Sean Nieuwenhuis snapped headshots of 14 of our costumed supernumeraries, who will become the faces on our custom scrim.
Their faces will then be multiplied electronically so that they cover the entire width and breadth of the scrim.

The effect is sure to have people talking!
Does it come in a wallpaper too?
