To celebrate the achievements of 2019 and to welcome all the prospects of 2020, Live Design is conducting 31 Days Of Plots. Every day during the month of December 2019, we will highlight a different lighting design, from across theatre, concert tours, corporate events, and more. 

Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning playwright Tracy Letts' funny tragicomedy, Linda Vista, has opened on Broadway at the Helen Hayes Theatre as the third iteration of a new play. The creative team for this production, directed by Dexter Bullard, includes Todd Rosenthal, set design, Laura Bauer, costume design, Richard Woodbury, sound design, and Marcus Doshi, lighting design. Click through the slideshow to check out Doshi's lighting plots, and take an in-depth look into the lighting design here.
