#66 Japhy Weideman in 1: the podcast

Just before we say good riddance to 2016, the podcast is back with one more episode with Lighting Designer and four-time Tony Nominee Japhy Weideman. Japhy is fresh off the hit show 'Dear Evan Hansen,' and he tells us about the challenges and nuances of lighting a musical in a black void filled with projected imagery. Cory and Japhy also talk about his style and approach to lighting with examples from his work including 'Bright Star', 'The Nance', 'Dead Poet's Society', 'Macbeth' and 'The Visit.' He talks about his love of strong single sources, why focus is an important time of discovery, and how he uses a American/European hybrid magic sheet. As if he weren't busy enough, Japhy is about to tackle his biggest Broadway design yet with this Spring's upcoming 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,' and he let's us in on how he is preparing for the show he describes as "essentially two giant musicals." Enjoy!
