Union Square's Barnes & Noble will host Tony-winning set designer of Moulin Rouge! Derek McLane and journalist Eila Mell to discuss and sign their new book Designing Broadway: How Derek McLane and Other Acclaimed Set Designers Create the Visual World of Theatre November 28 at 7 PM. Tony- and Emmy-nominated director-playwright Moisés Kaufman (Paradise Square) will moderate the discussion.
Designing Broadway takes readers inside the design process, from coming up with ideas, to researching the setting, to problem-solving staging challenges. The book features discussions with Broadway auteurs such as Kaufman, Lynn Nottage, John Leguizamo, and more. It also features behind-the-scenes looks at Into the Woods, Hadestown, Hamilton, and more.
For entry, attendees can purchase book admission, which includes a copy of the book along with access to the event and signing line; or gift card admission, which includes a gift card and access to the signing line.
The book will officially be released November 22.
