Spotlight On: Set Designer Heather Kenyon

As SBMT looks excitedly toward its 2019-2020 season, we wanted to give you a sneak peek at the artists who work behind the scenes to make the magic happen. To that end, we have created a series of video interviews with the design team for our first show of the season, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder.

In this first installment, Heather Kenyon shows off a scale model of the set she has designed. Watch the video below (or read the transcript).

Who are you, and what is your role in this production?

Heather Kenyon set designHi. I am Heather Kenyon. And I am the set designer for A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder. This is a set model of what the audience will see when they walk into the theater. What you see here is a “stage within a stage,” so something different than you might have seen here before.  And the whole world we’ve created is a black-and-white, line-art world in the style of the artist Edward Gorey.  And you’ll notice that everything is black and white except for this curtain, which is a very bright, vibrant, red.

What makes you excited about working on this production?

I am excited about working on this production because of how quickly everything needs to change. There are many locations in this show that happen back-to-back-to-back, and it is very fast-paced, so creating something that allows us to change locations that often is very exciting.
