Outside The Box With Mike Baldassari

Lighting designer Mike Baldassari moves from one genre—theatre, film, television, concert—to the next with the confidence and flexibility the entertainment design industry demands. While Baldassari claims he epitomizes the classic “jack of all trades, master of none,” his Tony and Emmy Award nominations suggest otherwise. Baldassari will be speaking at the New York Master Classes: Lighting + Projection, June 2-4 at NYU Tisch School of the Arts and The Gallatin School, where he will share his advice on remaining versatile in the entertainment industry.
