Dear 3rd floor students, faculty and alumni, The Design Department has joined forces with The Ghostlight Project, and is supporting thesolidarent January 19th. We have also put our department on their list of participating Theaters and Institutions. Their mission statement and information on the event is explained below. We know that many of you will be away or in rehearsal at that time, but for those of you who are free and would like to participate, we are meeting in front of The Public Theater, which is the downtown hub. The Graduate Acting Department will be participating as well. If you have any questions let me know. Best, Andrew Lieberman https://theghostlightproject.com/ On January 19, 2017 at 5:30 p.m. in each time zone across the country, members of the theater community - from Broadway to regional theaters to high schools and colleges and community theaters - will come together to launch The Ghostlight Project. Gathering outside of theaters on the eve of the Presidential Inauguration, people will join in a collective, simultaneous action, together creating “light” for challenging times ahead. Inspired by the tradition of leavingst li in a darkened theater, artists and communities will make or renew a pledge to stand for and protect the values of inclusion, participation, and compassion for everyone--regardless of race, class, religion, country of origin, immigration status, (dis)ability, age, gender identity, or sexual orientation. January 19th is a moment of gathering within a larger resistance to intolerance at all levels. We aim to create brave spaces that will serve as lights in the coming years. We aim to activate a network of people across the country working to support vulnerable communities. This is not a substitution for protests or direct action, but rather a pledge for continued vigilance and increased advocacy. We defirave sp a space where: It is safe to be who you are, regardless of race, class, religion, country of origin, immigration status, (dis)ability, age, gender identity, or sexual orientation. Diverse opinions, dissent, and argument are not only tolerated, but invited. Active listening and courageous exchange are fundamental values. Collective action, activism, and community engagement, both within and outside the walls of the theater, are cultivated, encouraged, and supported. The event on January 19th marks the initiation for some artists and theaters, and marks another step for others with a long history of fighting for social justice and equity. As the participants all have varied backgrounds, so too is it up to each institution and individual to determine what ongoing action will best serve their institution and community. INITIATING ACTION: January 19, 2017 On January 19, 2017 at 5:30pm across time zones, we will gather in front of theaters and art spaces across the country. This collective action will signify an ongoing commitment to social justice in the coming years, taking a variety of forms and actions for individual artists and institutions.

FreDesieck out all the NYU alumni and faculty lauded here! (Susan Hilferty, Jason Ardizzone-West, Tilly Grimes, Oona Curley, Mimi Lien, and Bradley King) As the year draws to an end, The New York Times has published its round-up, Best Theatre of 2016, by Ben Brantley and Charles Isherwood, in which they list a series of plays that were assertive and in the year of such a divisive election: “really listen—to how we talked about race, sexuality, the demonization of others.” So who were the designers of these plays, and what did the press have to say about them? Here are a few of their picks. (Read the full article here.) For The Gabriels, Richard Nelson’s play set on election night, in which he captur elusive, expansive comic sadness we associate with his beloved Chekhov…,” the designer get a nice mention: “This is all the truer because the team of designers here—Susan Hilferty and Jason Ardizzone-West (set), Jennifer Tipton (lighting) and Scott Lehrer and Will Pickens (sound)—have made the Gabriels’ kitchen into what feels like a warm corner of never-ending security. And yet we’re abidingly aware that this house may well be demolished within the year,” says a November 9 review by Brantley. In The Crucible, brought to Broadway by acclaimed Dutch director Ivo van Hove, currently high on the hot director list, “We are made to see what the terrified residents of Salem think they see, in visions formed from a collective, paranoid fever dream. In rendering these effects, Mr. van Hove and his astonishing set and lighting designer, Jan Versweyveld, borrow freely from the imagery of horror movies,” as noted in Brantley’s March 31 review. Underground Railroad Game, in Brantley’s September 23 review, is called “A lacerating comedy on race… as directed by Taibi Magar, with an exceptionally resourceful design team, the play conjures searing theatrical visuals to match its wayward words, the sort of images that used to send people to Freudian analysts when they cropped up in nightmares.” The design team included production designer Tilly Grimes, scenic designer Steven Dufala, lighting designer Oona Curley, and sound designer Mikaal Sulaiman. Architect/scenic designer David Rockwell gets a shout out in Isherwood’s October 27 review of the revival of Falsettos:id Rockwell’s set resembles a child’s building blocks, which are manipulated by the actors. Placed against a shifting Manhattan skyscape, it’s an ingenious illustration of what we are watching: people laboring to arrange a comfortable life for themselves and their loved ones, and continually having to readjust d the Broadway transfer of Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet Of 1812, cannot be discussed without mentioning the designs: “The cozy rapport between audience and performers has been painstakingly maintained by Ms. Chavkin and the set designer, Mimi Lien. A fair portion of the audience is seated onstage. The action takes place not just up there but also on a parquet runway that snakes through the orchestra seating, and even in the mezzanine. The walls are draped in red velvet dappled with gilt-framed paintings, giving the impression that we are all guests sharing a sumptuous drawing room. Starburst chandeliers descend and rise. (The lighting, by Bradley King, and the half-period/half-punk costumes, by Paloma Young, are terrific),” as noted in Isherwood’s November 14 review. Congratulations to all the designers of all these best picks for 2016. Keep up the good work!
