Tony Award winning lighting designer Beverly Emmons has lit up stages for Broadway and Off-Broadway shows, regional theater, dance, opera, and even a Disney World show. Her philosophy is simple. “I like to call lighting design a secondary art form,” she says. “We support and reveal the work that somebody else is making. What’s important is the work on the stage—the dancers, the actors, the vision of the director, playwright, choreographer and how this play or this dance should be seen. It is the work that is important and our role is to reveal and reinforce it. It’s an honor to be useful in that area.”
