65 – Theatre Design w. Sofia Lukie

Theatrical designer Sofia Lukie is here to talk all about exactly that!

We break theatre design down into some broad categories – lighting, sound, set, costumes, projections – in order to discuss what makes these elements work & what makes them fall flat. We chat about our own personal design tendencies and how designers adapt for modern audiences; the ones who require more than just smoke machines and a spotlight to get their butts into the theatres’ seats.
