We had two Behind-the-Scenes tours during the run of Desire Under the Elms at Firehouse Theatre and both groups got to dive deep into the intense drama of the Eugene O’Neill classic. Director Josh Chenard took them through his process of adapting this challenging family story, cutting it down to the raw essentials. After a
delicious catered dinner by the fine chefs at Kitchenette (peanut butter pie!), we enjoyed the show then, after a short
recovery, associate producer and all-around backstage whiz Todd LaBelle took the troops all around the decommissed Firehouse. It was a unique experience and one each participant said they’d be excited to do again.
