As we all know, the original Broadway TH set was groundbreaking in its day, but times have changed since then, and with the changing of the times come new ideas. In the production that I'm in, the set isn't as elaborate and most of the Sweet Apple teens are positioned on stage, which is still a good way to do it. Here's the closest thing I could find to the original Gower Champion design: http://nla.gov.au/nla.pic-vn3066824-v
Did anyone else on here stick to this design for the most part for your productions, or did you do something different? If so, explain.
