During the month of December, 10 pieces from Troy David Johnson’s “Going Dark” series will be on display at ASU Gammage.

Through the power of photography, this series tells a story of theaters across London and the United Kingdom in shutdown. Coronavirus hit the West End, creating a cloud of darkness over its theaters and the people who gave it life.

With a Bachelor of Arts in drama, and years of wardrobe and performing experience, to now scrubbing green paint off his hands as principal dresser to Elphaba for the production of "Wicked" at the Apollo Victoria, a love for theater runs through Johnson’s blood and seeps into his photography.

Johnson’s work will be on display at ASU Gammage until Dec. 31.
