Crafting Worlds: Theatrical Design
Our guests – Scenic Designer David Gallo, Sound Designer John Gromada, Costume Designer Susan Hilferty and Lighting Designer Peter Kaczorowski – discuss how a design team enhances a production; when they are brought into the production and how they interact with one another as the show unfolds; their process in preparing for each show; their collaboration not only with each other but also with the director and the actors; the logistical challenges they face with each new show; how they got involved in theatre design and what training they did or didn’t receive; advice they’d give to young designers; how they handle creative differences with other designers and the director; and where they find inspiration for their designs.
An acclaimed fixture on New York television and in the theatre community for 30 years, the American Theatre Wing’s “Working in the Theatre” offers an unprecedented forum for the meeting of theatrical minds.
