The Secret Garden
Book & Lyrics by Marsha Norman | Directed by Victoria Bussert | Scenery by Jeff Herrmann | Costumes by Charlotte M. Yetman | Sound by David Gotwald | Lighting by Paul Miller | for the Great Lakes Theater Company Cleveland, OH
"Jeff Herrmann’s scenic design entails isolated pieces of foreboding gothic architecture against a black backdrop. There’s a central stone wall that keeps the secret garden behind it at bay as well as gargoyle-adorned iron gates on each side. This creates a dark and dire environment, made even more dire by Paul Miller’s dramatic lighting and a steady stream of dry ice."
