The Full Monty……almost

Lincoln Editorial Photographer


Here is a portrait I took recently for The Sunday Times of Director and Actor Daniel Evans. Daniel is directing the nationwide theatre tour of “The Full Monty” which kicked-off at The Lyceum Sheffield. I set my lights up in advance and had the idea to use the massive floods at the back of the stage. These are used at the end of the play when the guys strip-off. The lighting technician started on minimum and I kept shouting “higher, higher”. “THAT’S 20000 WATTS!” he replied as we hit maximum. I imagined Mr Scott pleading with Kirk on the bridge that the “dilithium crystals cannae take no more captain” and I think the lights dimmed in Rotherham. My Elinchrom flash heads still coped though. The Full Monty….almost? Well, I couldn’t really ask him to strip off for The Sunday Times. It was VERY warm up there though.
