Co-produced and designed my first Broadway musical and received the first Tony to be awarded to woman solo set designer. The show got the Tony for Best Musical that year. Brilliant score and great direction by Des McAnuff. I gave birth to my first son in the middle of technical rehearsals. Not sure how I lived to tell the tale...
Produced as well as designed this original musical with the first-ever female creative team. Multi-Tony awarded show directed by Susan Schulman, included one for best scenic design. Oh, and [I] had another child during the process!
Hunchback of Notre Dame
The Berlin production directed by James Lapine; we got to try some really innovative theatrical experiments which the German audiences embraced for its six-year run. The animated stage of elevators was designed to move around the actors.
My favorite thing to design is Shakespeare; this production at the Public directed by James Lapine was a revelation. Pure pleasure to get to hear the text beautifully acted over and over again; by the end of the run, I had memorized most of the play.
