For Best Lighting Design of a Play, the nominated designers this year are Jeff Croiter (for Peter and the Starcatcher), Peter Kaczorowski (The Road to Mecca), Brian MacDevitt (Death of a Salesman) and Kenneth Posner (Other Desert Cities). For Best Lighting Design of a Musical, the nominees are Christopher Akerlind (for The Gershwin's Porgy and Bess), Natasha Katz (nominated twice, for Follies and Once) and Hugh Vanstone (for Ghost the Musical).
FocusTrack also congratulates the nominees in two other recently announced New York theatre awards - Kevin Adams (for Carrie), Neil Austin (Evita), David Lander (One Arm), Brian MacDevitt (Salesman), Kenneth Posner (Death Takes A Holiday) and Paul Pyant (Richard III) in the Drama Desk Awards, and in the Outer Critics Circle Awards, Neil Austin once again for Evita, Donald Holder for Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark, Brian MacDevitt once again for Salesman and Hugh Vanstone, again for Ghost the Musical.
Of the Tony-nominated shows, three of the four nominated musicals - Porgy and Bess, Follies and Once - used FocusTrack to document their show lighting. Of the other award nominees, both Carrie and Evita also used FocusTrack. The shows join many other productions in New York (including Nice Work If You Can Get It, Anything Goes, Mary Poppins and Sister Act) and around the world that are already using FocusTrack.
Those near Broadway later this month will be able to find out more about FocusTrack at the Broadway Lighting Master Class, at which Rob Halliday will be speaking about FocusTrack on May 23rd.
