INTERVIEW WITH LIGHTING DESIGNER LUCY CARTER

"Every script has a different challenge. I think in theatre, the biggest challenge is trying to create the right emotional lighting environment is time – the technical time to actually try things and experience them and watch the show under those environments and then make tweaks.

INTERVIEW WITH COMPOSER MICHAEL HENRY

"Something that is always fun is, you can write a theme, you can take a snippet of that theme and just stretch it around to create vocal collages – an individual who doesn’t call themselves a singer might think it’s just a bit weird holding this long note, but when 12 people are doing it you have this rich effect.
