Now this pisses me off. Not because I don’t like these designs, but because it shows just how watered down the final product was. These designs are gorgeous, and I wouldn’t mind at all seeing a show with these sets and lighting schemes; but the end product was so cheap-looking and simplified even by the standards of the new material they brought in. And that, combined with they way they felt the need to butcher PRE-EXISTING costumes to make their cheapened “new” versions, and the hideous new blocking is enough to make me never want to see this re-imagining.
