It feels just like yesterday that Graham was writing a similar blog post about me, and yet four years and four months later I'm writing one myself. As of January, I'll be passing the torch (tiara?) of Opus Affair Boston chapter host to Carolyn MacLeod.

Aimee Doherty: The Toast of Mayfair (and Boston)!

Posted by Kyle Thomas Hemingway on Apr 24, 2018 1:07:29 PM | 0 comments | Interviews

Known for her excellent work with nearly every theater company in town, Aimee Doherty is currently taking center stage in her fifth (!) turn as Sally Bowles in Cabaret. In between shows on a two-show Saturday, she sat down with me to talk Sally (the character and the dog), being very excited in a garden center, her Rent the Runway habit, and her upcoming Boston Pops debut.

Your Brand Toolbox: So much more than just a logo

Posted by Kyle Thomas Hemingway on May 19, 2017 3:55:00 PM | 0 comments | Design, Arts Marketing

It's arguably the most important thing about communicating your organization or production. It's how you let people know it's you when they receive your messages. No, it's not your logo. It's your brand. There's a difference—a big one. Let's talk...

Not all information is created equal: Basic principles of design

Posted by Kyle Thomas Hemingway on Mar 1, 2017 12:25:37 PM | 0 comments | Design, Arts Marketing

Okay. We've had a couple of days to recover from the epic fail that was the announcement of the Best Film Academy Award on Sunday evening. I've read (yes, and made) countless tweets and think pieces about how better design could have prevented this catastrophe—one even went so far as to redesign the cards.

"Art isn't easy." When is a departure from the expected too much?

Posted by Kyle Thomas Hemingway on Feb 3, 2017 1:04:31 PM | 1 comment | Design, Arts Marketing

Last week, I wrote about how the artwork advertising a performance doesn’t have to be directly tied to its plot, production design, or star cast members. But, like all sweeping, hyperbolic generalizations I make, there are exceptions…

What's that got to do with anything? Photography from the Paris Opera's 2017/2018 season announcement

Ladies* Who Lunch: Georgia Lyman

Posted by Kyle Thomas Hemingway on Jul 8, 2016 4:41:19 PM | 0 comments | Ladies* Who Lunch, Interviews

In the days leading up to the opening of the 2016 Outside the Box Festival, I sat down with artistic director and Nicholas Sparks enthusiast Georgia Lyman. Over a delicious lunch at Trident Booksellers on Newbury Street, we discussed just what goes into producing an arts festival, my favorite 1930s screwball comedy, and whiskys with umbrellas in them.

Recently, over an oyster lunch on the patio of Row 34, I sat down with cocktail empress and gowns-with-pockets enthusiast Maureen Hautaniemi and, after a brief interlude about custom oyster shucking belts in Amsterdam, chatted about fashion, fishing, and what exactly The Thing is.
