Plot Lines is an exciting new content module, produced by Ellen Lampert-Gréaux for Live Design/LDI, in which lighting designers share and discuss a light plot in great depth. The sessions are hosted by KOI Award-winning lighting/projection designer Roma Flowers.
The next in the series will be via Zoom on Friday, February 26, 2021 at 2pm Eastern, featuring Tony-Award winning lighting designer Jeff Croiter, who will share and discuss the plots for his award-winning work for Peter and The Starcatcher. His additional Broadway credits include Freestyle Love Supreme, Bandstand, Falsettos (revival), Something Rotten, Newsies, Holiday Inn, The Pee-wee Herman Show, and Penn & Teller on Broadway (and Las Vegas). He also works extensively in regional theatre, dance, special events, concerts, circus, and off-Broadway, where he has designed over 200 shows.
The light plot for Peter and The Starcatcher underwent many changes and adaptations through the numerous incarnations over the long life of the show. For Plot Lines, in addition to breaking down the specifics of the various and eclectic mix of equipment used (VL3500, VL1000, Claypaky 1500, High End Systems Studio Color, Martin Mac Aura, Martin Mac Viper, Mac Aura), Croiter will explore the journey from a workshop at La Jolla Playhouse to off-Broadway to Broadway to 1st national tour to 2nd national tour.
