The set of a Broadway production is so important. It gives the viewers a general idea of the setting of the show, and when it takes place. Without brilliant people such as Tim Hatley (Spamalot), Stanley Meyer (Beauty and the Beast), David Rockwell (Hairspray) and many more, there wouldn't be the same magic on Broadway as there is now.
order for a Broadway show to look and sound it's best, the theatre
needs a great creative team. The members of the creative
team consist of the lyricist, composer, costume designer, set designer,
and more. People even get awards for their sets, costumes, etc. at
the Tony Awards!
2004, Susan Hilferty won best costume design for Wicked. Jules Fisher
and Peggy Eisenhauer won best Lighting Design for Assassins.
Kathleen Marshall won best choreography for Wonderful Town,
and Michael Starobin won Best Orchestrations for Assassins.
