Legendary illustrator Edward Gorey might be best known for his illustrated books done in his trademark gothic Victorian style, but back in 1977 he also helped kickstart a broadway production of Dracula, designing the costumes and set design, which he later won a Tony award for. But in this old recorded interview taken from a documentary shot shortly before his death, Gorey admits to not understanding the “big deal” about the production and revealing that he thought his Tony award was undeserved. “If I were going to win a Tony award it should’ve been for the sets,” he says. “I don’t think I deserved the other one. Giving me a Tony award for eight tacky little costumes I felt was more an insult than anything else.”
Anyone who ever talks about SLEEP NO MORE being told through “mime” will be taken out back, tied to a tree, and monkeys will throw feces at them for 4 hours.
There is NO FUCKING MIME IN SLEEP NO MORE. NONE.
