Photography: “Rm. XIV”

While traveling across Europe playing “Riff,” the leader of the Jets in a touring company of West Side Story, Mark MacKillop felt the nightly “rumble” onstage wasn’t enough to fuel his creative appetite. So, he set about to create a visual journal of life lived out of a suitcase in various hotel rooms.

Now, when you’re on the road in the privacy of your own hotel room, you probably don’t wear too many clothes. And MacKillop is no exception. Lucky for us.

What began as a “project” has arrived fully developed as Room XIV.  Not only is Mark sharing his private life, he’s sharing 25% of the proceeds with Broadway Cares: Equity Fights AIDS.

The book is available for pre-order at
