Hello Beautiful!

Act Two: Illuminating the Stage

Designer Brian Sidney Bembridge says light affects our mood in ways most people don't even realize. He talks about the subtle and not-so-subtle effects of lighting in the everyday world and on stage. The simplicity of lights, Bembridge suggests, adds to their effectiveness.

Brian's latest design work can be see in the play The Violet Hour presented by Uma Productions April 13-May 6, 2006, at the Chopin Theatre.

Featured Music: Ella Fitzgerald, “I'm Beginning to See the Light,” Love Songs: Best of Verve Songbooks (Polygram Records, 1996)

Originally broadcast July 17. 2005
