Working in the Theatre: Lighting Design

A technician, an artist, a magician… What does a Lighting Designer do in the theatre? We dive deep with Tony Awards-winning Lighting Designers Natasha Katz and Howell Binkley, as we explore the assortment of creative and technical goals in developing a story through lights on stage. Learn about the history of the field, the equipment, and the artistry of design as Natasha Katz and Howell Binkley show us their work at the PRG: Live showroom and onstage at Hamilton: An American Musical and Aladdin – The Musical.
