On the day before PS122 handed over our keys to the building contractors, Director of Production Derek Lloyd squeezed in one last photo shoot, with none other than the legendary Annie Leibovitz. Her subjects were Alex Timbers, Ruthie Ann Miles, and David Byrne in a shoot for a Vogue magazine piece about their upcoming show, Here Lies Love. The final photo came out beautifully, highlighting the downstairs theater’s columns and back wall elegantly. The Vogue article can be seen digitally here and will be released in print on March 26th.
While I don’t know if Annie, Alex or Ruthie have been to PS122 shows in the past, we’ve seen David at several shows over the years, most memorably at Japanther’s 3D Dinosaur Death Dance, where I remember him ducking just before nearly being decapitated by the bicycle-powered robotic dinosaur (pictured above).
