Starting Your Career as a Theatrical Designer by
Publication Date: 2012-08-15
In the first book of its kind to be published in twenty years, ten award-winning and current Broadway designers--five set designers, four lighting designers, and one projection designer--discuss the business aspects of the theatre world, sharing relevant insider information and strategies that will prove invaluable to aspiring and seasoned theatrical designers alike. Culled from years of experience, the information offered in these enlightening conversations will strengthen readers' understanding of how designing in the commercial theatre is different from designing in an academic setting or not-for-profit theatres. The conversations are accompanied by designer sketches, finished drawings, technical plates of drafting, photos of scale models, storyboards illustrating multi-scene productions and unique lighting looks, and photos from Broadway and regional theatre productions. If you've ever wondered what it really takes to make it in the world of theatre design, let these Broadway stars be your guide!
