Lighting Design

Lighting has been my passion since I first discovered theatrical lighting design in high school. The way that lighting can set mood, atmosphere, space, time of day, rhythm and so much more continues to fascinate me today. I see light as an integral part of telling the story in performance. Not only does it illuminate the subject, but it can convey so much context instantly to an audience before a word is even spoke or a note played.

Columbus Theatre - Richard Ades, April 5, 2016

Finally, something needs to be said for Adam Zeek's lighting, which allows the show to live up to its name without becoming excessively graphic.
