BRIDGEPORT, Conn., April 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Global Scenic Services, Inc. (GSS), an internationally respected scenery fabrication company, based in Bridgeport, Connecticut, turns the fantastical and dramatic visions of leading scenic designers of opera, ballet and drama productions into multi-dimensional realities. James Malski, president of GSS, announced that the company's recent projects have included:
Dimitrij – An opera, that takes place in 17th century Russia, will have a set designed by David Zinn, a Tony award winner for The Humans and a respected set and costume designer. This will open in July at The Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts at Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, NY.
Little Foxes – A revival of the Lillian Hellman play at the Manhattan Theatre Club, New York City, just opened April 13th. The forced perspective set was designed by Scott Pask, a Tony Award and Drama Desk Award winner. The play stars Laura Linney, Cynthia Nixon and Richard Thomas.
The Price – The set for this revival of the Arthur Miller play was designed by Derek McLane and includes a 10,000 pound ceiling which appears, to the audience, to have no support. Running through May 14th, at the American Airlines Theatre, New York City, the play stars Mark Ruffalo, Danny DeVito, Jessica Hecht and Tony Shalhoub. McLane is winner of 1997, 2004 OBIE Awards, 2004, 2005, 2007 Lortel Awards, 2009 Tony Award, 2011 Drama Desk Award, 2015, 2016 Art Directors Guild Award, and 2014 Emmy Award.

Whipped Cream - A ballet with sets designed by the pop surrealist painter Mark Ryden will open May 22nd at the Metropolitan Opera House, New York City. Based on a Richard Strauss libretto, Schlogobers, this is the story of a young boy's over indulgence of candy and his sugar induced hallucinations in which the colorful confections come alive.
