Scene design for a Nightclub, Act I, scene 9, in Me and Juliet
Maker and role
Artist: Jo Mielziner, American, 1901-1976
In Mielziner's sets, the proscenium arch of the show within the show is often positioned off-center to reveal the behind-the-scenes action. In the nightclub scene, a chorus girl and the assistant stage manager embrace in the wings as the actors playing Carmen and Don Juan dance on stage.
