“Can light breathe? Can light transcend reality? Can light create an evocative aura? Eight of the most creative Broadway lighting designers are being challenged to answer these questions. We are searching our own design principles and practices to unleash the talent and potential within yourselves. Won’t you join us on this quest?” -- Jules Fisher
