Nominated for Best Scenic Design of a Play for this year's Tony Awards, Beowulf Boritt's intricate set for Act One is three stories tall, includes six scenic areas, and uses over 200 dimmers. The installation process demanded 17 electricians, 12 carpenters, and four props experts. The set is designed upon a massive 60’, 70,000lb turntable.
Act One also features the design talents of Tony Award nominee Jane Greenwood for costume design; lighting design by Ken Billington; and sound design by Dan Moses Schreier.
