Lucky Number 7: Quarantine Designer Happy Hour

(in1: the podcast)

in 1: the podcast returns with the seventh Quarantine Happy Hour. Host and lighting designer Cory Pattak chats with lighting designer Jen Schriever, associate scenic designer Erica Hemminger, associate lighting designer Jessica Creager, costume designer Linda Cho, and lighting designer Japhy Weideman. As parts of the world slowly start to open up, the group shares their feelings on venturing further out from home and how New York (and North Carolina where Japhy is) are starting to feel a little different. We hear stories on how Erica (heading up Derek McLane’s studio) continues to work on future productions of Moulin Rouge and other shows even as we wait to see when theatre will return. Jess tells us about being four days out from freezing Company on Broadway when everything shut down. Japhy shares stories of working with the great Terrence McNally, sadly one of the first high profile deaths related to COVID-19. Linda makes a loaf on Sourdough LIVE on air! It’s a podcast and a cooking class! It’s peak quarantine cliches! What are you waiting for? Listen to the podcast below.
