Anna Louizos Launches Broadway Design Exchange, Online Space for Theatrical Memorabilia
By Carey Purcell
Original sketches, models, costumes and designs from Broadway scenic designers are now available for purchase through a new website created by Tony Award-nominated scenic designer Anna Louizos.
Louizos, who has worked on Cinderella, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, In the Heights, Curtains and Avenue Q, has launched the new online venture broadwaydesignexchange.com, which highlights the work that takes place backstage and provides insight into the effort that goes into putting on a show.
Broadway and theatre creatives can sell memorabilia from the productions they have worked on. Categories include Original Artwork, Set Sketches/Renderings, Costume Sketches/Renderings and Models and Miniatures.
"We end up building all kinds of things that end up not in the model box," Louizos told Playbill.com. "So rather than throw them away, which would break my heart, we've collected them and we are making shadowboxes out of them."
Visit broadwaydesignexchange.com for more information.
