"I was served Lemons, but I made Lemonade"

Lemonade:

The Visual Album

     Lemonade, the Visual Album, was a life changing experience for everyone involved. The story behind Lemonade is one that many women in the world can relate to. Being cheated on. Each scene was a different musical number based on to stages of being cheated on. Realization, confrontation, acceptance, anger, revenge, fear, forgiveness. All of this wrapped in the package with the message that Women are the strongest people in the world if they can overcome a situation as such, especially the African American woman in the United States.

     This being said, the design team worked tirelessly to make relevant all of these themes, while not shoving them down the audiences throat. I, as the assistant director worked endless hours for all five weeks of the production. I worked hand and hand with the design teams in Set, Sound, Lighting, and Costumes to ensure everything ran very smooth for Jaye, the director/choreographer. I got to hang lights and do paperwork in each design area to make sure we got exactly what we wanted.
