    Get the sound track and listen to it. Then go to the library and get some photo and art books from the 80's. Maybe watch MTV's "I Love the 80's" series. That should give you ideas. Having people tell you what did or didn't work for them won't give you an accurate idea of will or won't work for you.

    Working on a show that you are not familiar with may be harder, but it opens up new opportunities to do new things. If you aren't familiar with a show, get familiar with it. Read the script, listen to the sound track. See how those things make you feel, what emotions they evoke. Then go and do visual research and find images and looks that evoke the same reactions. Then take those images and think about how to replicate them on stage.

    But yes, know the music in and out. Know the script in and out. I have a feeling this show will be "80's throw up on stage", so be prepared for that, learn about the 80's if you did not experience them.
