I’ve just finished up a few weeks working at the Geffen Playhouse on A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Gynecologic Oncology Unit at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center of New York City. Matthew Richards was the Lighting Designer, but could only be in town for a few days. He tasked me as Associate Lighting Designer to oversee the production’s lighting design.
The 2016-16 Metropolitan Opera season has come to a close. It was an amazing place to work for the last three years.
After three amazing seasons at the Met, my wife and I have decided to move to Los Angeles for a number of reasons. I’ll be heading out there at the end of June and will be rebuilding this website, and be available for work starting at the beginning of July.
I’ve just finished NYCB’s Fall season, which included the world premiere of “Ocean’s Kingdom”, choreographed by Peter Martins with music by Paul McCartney and lighting by Mark Stanley. It was a challenging project but also a fun one to be a part of. Next up is 12 Angry Men for New Players Company.
I’ve just finished designing the premiere of Firemen by Tommy Smith, directed by Michael McQuilken. The show was produced by my good friends at Magic Futurebox and performed at the Tank on 45th street. I was really happy with how the show turned out, especially given limited resources and tech time.
We’ve just wrapped up the Fall Season at the New York City Ballet, which has taken up almost all of my time since mid-April. Next up, I’m designing Crimes of the Heart and The Odd Couple for New Players Company, and I’m headed up to Williams College in MA to light Davidsbunderlertanze for a weekend.
I spent almost all of 2009 working on projects with the New York City Ballet, as I am now officially their Assistant Lighting Director. We just wrapped up our 2010 Winter Season. Next up for me is designing A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline for the Fiddlehead Theater Company in Boston at the John Hancock Hall. After that, I’m assisting William Armstrong at the Mint Theater on 43rd Street on the play Dr. Knock. After that, it’s time to prep the Spring 2010 Ballet season. I’m available for work for all of August and most of October and November.
I’ve finished my time in Peterborough, NH for the summer, where I designed Harvey, Nobody Don’t Like Yogi, Stones in His Pockets, Private Lives, An Ideal Husband, Doubt and the children’s shows Hansel and Gretel and Cindy Reilly.
I’m about to head to Torrington, CT to tech The Magic Treehouse, a new children’s show going on a national tour. When I return from that, I’m going to Tempe, AZ to do Cloudless with Susan Marshall & Company, followed by New Orleans to be Assistant LD for the Starbucks Leadership Convention and General Assembly. Then I’m designing Absurd Person Singular for the Bristol Riverside Theater in Pennsylvania, followed by associate designing A Christmas Carol at Dallas Theater Center.
It’s a busy fall. Pictures from the summer’s shows should be up shortly, along with a minor redesign of some portions of the website.
Stones in His Pockets opened yesterday as my fourth design of the Peterborough Player’s season. The Monadnock Ledger-Transcript said, “…also designed the simple but serviceable set and Eric Larson’s stunning lighting provides any additional scenery that is needed.”
