In our business, no list is complete without A Chorus Line and Tharon Musser’s Tony Award-winning lighting design that included the first-ever computerized lighting control and masterful followspot work (check out “Technology That Changed The Lighting Industry,” LD, March 2011). With a creative team comprising the godfather of sound design Abe Jacob, scenic designer Robin Wagner, and costume designer Theoni V. Aldredge, this production brought lighting into the modern era. One reader says, “The lighting was as much a part of the story as the script and created much of the scenic as well.” Another loves the design “for its simple reverence for performers.”
