Summary

This established and respected text for courses in scene design and stage lighting offers a contemporary viewpoint from two experienced authors. Current trends are highlighted, such as the importance of collaboration in the theatrical process. Dance lighting is discussed in detail. The discussion of automated fixture design and control is the most extensive available. The light plot and paperwork for the Broadway show Tommy highlight the most current theatrical practices. The changing nature of the field is reflected in the discussion of the growing use of computers in design, drafting, and technical production. Current electronic drawing systems, such as CAD, are included. A new chapter on "Lighting for the Commercial Theatre -- Broadway and Regional" prepares students for working in this arena.
