In this production of John Guare's Six Degrees of Separation the director and designers sought to create a balance on stage that allowed the audience to shift from the plot's reality into the dreams and memories that shape the characters' ability to make true existential connections or reduce their personal interactions to party anecdotes. This production, created by the Brooklyn company The Gallery Players, also sought to present New York City life in a light that would also have a first-degree connection to its local audience.
Todd's sound design for this play included original music, written and recorded on upright bass, that laid out the pulse of New York City and underscored the search for a link between the shared imagination and dreams of art dealers, con artists, husbands, wives, parents, and children. The following year Playhouse on the Green in Bridgeport, CT also included Todd's original music in their production of this play.
