Richard Pilbrow wins Wally Russell Award
The LDI trade show, in full swing this weekend in Las Vegas, is highlighted by today's presentation of the Wally Russell Award to the venerable lighting designer Richard Pilbrow, currently on Broadway with A Tale of Two Cities (pictured). As a former editor of Lighting Dimensions magazine (which has been made over into Live Design), I attended LDI from 1994-2000, and can't imagine a more fitting choice for this prestigious honor than the wise and witty Pilbrow. My feature on the musical's design will appear in the November issue of Live Design.
