During the week of February 20-27, ALL PLANET will be
presenting a debut of the new visuals produced and directed by Gabreal
Franklin, wonderful video artisan Denise Gallant, and Kevin Monahan on
DVD Authoring. Along with this core team, Jeff Cavanough, Bergen
Franklin and other folks on the ALL PLANET STUDIOS production team have
created over 2 hours of new visuals for DENNY DOHERTY and the DREAM
A LITTLE DREAM Project.
Following a few days of rehearsals, there will be 3 shows of 2000 +
seat venues in the midwest. This will be the first time the production
has used high quality motion images to underscore the play about the life
and times of the very popular 1960's Music Group.
New elements include footage of the Mamas and Papas performing, as
well as Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Janis Joplin, and new music video segments
for Monday Monday, California Dreamin', 12:30, and many of the songs and
music the group made popular.
Following these first few shows, this page will be updated
with some of the new elements. For now, all we have time to present are
a few of the stills that were used in the production, as linked here:
