Beginning spring 2019, Tony-winning designer Clint Ramos will lead the design and production tracks in the theatre department at Fordham University.
The program offers concentrations in set design, costume design, lighting design, projection design, sound design, and stage management. Ramos began as an assistant professor at the university, teaching theatre history during the current fall 2018 semester. Next semester, he will work with current staff and teach courses on costume and scenic design and lead a design production workshop.
Previously, he was a professor of scenic design at SUNY Purchase and has been a visiting professor/artist at New York University and Georgetown University.
Ramos made his Broadway debut with the costume design of 2014’s Violet. He also designed the costumes for Broadway’s The Elephant Man, In Transit, Sunday in the Park With George, Six Degrees of Separation, and the current revivals of Once On This Island (for which he earned a Tony nomination) and Torch Song. Ramos designed both the set and costumes for Eclipsed on Broadway, winning a Tony Award for his costume design.
In 2013, Ramos won the Obie Award for Sustained Excellence in Design. He is the recipient of three Lucille Lortel Awards (Here Lies Love, Wild With Happy, So Help Me God!), two American Theater Wing Henry Hewes Awards, a Helen Hayes Award, the TDF Irene Sharraf Young Master Award, and three Drama Desk nominations (Once On This Island, So Help Me God!, The Return of the Prodigal).
