We at T. Schreiber are so very excited for our FIRST show of the 2011-2012 Season, Lobby Hero by Kenneth Lonergan. In preparation for the play Time Out New York hailed “a masterpiece,” we will be giving weekly shout-outs to our Lobby Heroes who allow us to do what we do and who make our lives that much easier.
Our first Lobby Hero of the week is Anthony Long!
nAnthony first came to Schreiber at the Assistant Technical Director on You Never Can Tell. For Lobby Hero Anthony has taken the lead as Technical Director. Anthony has also studied at TS having taken the Beginning Intensive I this summer. Due to the MTA transit shutdown Anthony stayed at TS all weekend, all day and night, to continue construction of the set rather than lose a weekend’s worth of work. Anthony braved hurricane Irene here at TS never ceasing even through the storm. It is that level of dedication and commitment to his craft that make Anthony our very first Lobby Hero of the week!nnAnthony studied at the prestigious North Bennet Street School in Boston, MA. After Anthony earned a degree in carpentry, he moved his business to Brooklyn, NY in the summer of 2009 (luckily for us here at TS). His wide range of skills as a woodworker allow him to work with many different people on many exciting and challenging projects, from high-end custom furniture to historic restoration. For custom commissions, Anthony can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.orgWhen I asked Anthony what is was like to be here all weekend long Anthony smiled and said, “all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.”nnnn
