RUSS ABBOTT AND FRIENDS NORTH PIER 1988
IN 1987 I WROTE A LETTER TO BASIL SOPER ASKING IF I COULD DESIGN HIS NEXT SUMMER SHOW ... TO MY AMAZEMENT HE TOOK A HUGE GAMBLE ON ME AND ASKED ME TO DESIGN WHAT WAS TO BE ONE OF THE BIGGEST SUMMER SHOWS IN YEARS. RUSS ABBOT WAS AT THE HEIGHT OF HIS TV CAREER AND THIS SHOW WAS TO BE A NO EXPENSE SPARED SHOWCASE OF HIS LIVE TALENTS. THIS WAS MY FIRST THEATER DESIGN JOB THAT DIRECTLY LED TO BUDDY THE BUDDY HOLLY STORY. WHEN PRODUCER PAUL ELLIOTT CAME TO VISIT HIS FRIEND RUSS ABBOT HE SAW MY SET AND OFFERED ME BUDDY ON THE SPOT.
