Go behind the sets of the past six Tony-award winning plays for Best Scenic Design from 2010-2015. Live Design has gathered video interviews with the designers and put them all in one spot as a one-stop-shop for all you scenic-fans.
In the videos below, hear what inspired their sets, how they go about their creative processes, or how the plays shaped the sets.
2010, Christopher Oram for Red
2011, Rae Smith for War Horse
Rae Smith received a Tony award for her set design of the 2011 Broadway version of War Horse at the Vivian Beaumont Theater, which employed bold strategies such as actors carrying sticks that would become fences or pieces of architecture.
2012, Donyale Werle for Peter And The Starcatcher
Donyale Werle was awarded the 2012 Tony award for her sustainable set design for Peter And The Starcatcher, for which she went dumpster diving to create the completely upcycled set out of found materials.
2013, John Lee Beatty for The Nance
2014, Beowulf Boritt for Act One
2015, Bunny Christie and Finn Ross for A Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time
Together, scenic designer Bunny Christie and video designer Finn Ross won the 2015 Tony Award for Best Scenic Design of a Play. In this video, Christie explains how the set reflects the main character's mindset, very technological and orderly, and at times, fizzing with the energy from his anxiety.
