many minutes to retreat again. This was in collaboration with
the music. Many things were talked of in the most vague of
terms, with no clue as to how they were to be done. That was
basically our problem."
By the time Wilson gave her the sketches, many of the
scenes. such as the train and the trial sequences, had been
worked out in detail. Others were still vague, especially the
huge space machine. "Originally Bob had this marvelous idea
that we are now in this space box and we are going to the
moon," says Giannini. "and sometimes we come near the
earth and see trees. We never could see the trees. unfortunately-that was asking a little bit too much. He knew it was
sort of like three bridges and he knew there were lots of
people up there doing dials and measures and whatnot.
working their control boards. And possibly it lit up. Beyond
that, no clue!" Her first idea was to go to 96th Street, where
there is a large panel that lights up to show where all of the
subway trains are at any given moment. It proved to be the
inspiration for the space machine, which became a large
metal construction, three tiers high, on which cast members
could stand in front of a panel of blinking lights. "The metal

unit worried me a lot," says Giannini, "because I suddenly
realized I had nineteen people. all moving around on this one
unit. When you think about it. that's a ton and a half of live
people so it must be rather seriously strong." This was complicated by the fact that. tall and wide as the structure had to
be, it could only be about four feet deep. since it had to be
preset behind the cyclorama throughout the show. It also had
to work on raked stageS-different rakes in different
houses-which meant it had to have adjustable casters on the
front.
The space machine was the last major element of the show
to be designed in detail. The next step was a model. "Especially for Bob. I felt I had to use models," says Giannini.
"because he is somebody who designs on a flat plane. which
is really the eighth row center. the King's seat. Now. what
about the balcony. what do they see? If you don't condition
him a little bit to what they're going to see, he's going to freak
out when he gets to a theatre, walks in the side door. and it
doesn't look anything like what he's used to." The original
models were very rough. "I don't believe in building a finsihed
model," she says. "I make it out of terrible stuff-you know,
