One of the main roles in Book of Mormons has a giant portrait of his head displayed on in one of the scenes. Tiina modelled the actor’s head in clay and casted it later with a light, thermoplastic material in cooperation with the theatre´s props master. An extra challenge appeared just before the premiere when it suddenly was decided that the hair shouldn’t be short and straight, as modelled, but long and curly! A hairdresser had to step in with a significant contribution. An employee at the painting department adjusted the skin colour to work with the strong lights on stage.
