Ho avuto il piacere di assistere a più di una presentazione del libro La Storia Della Discomusic, edito dalla Hoepli e scritto da Andrea Angeli Bufalini e Giovanni Savastano. Ogni volta sentendo parlare delle mitiche canzoni e degli artisti che hanno fatto la storia di questo intramontabile genere, mi sono ritrovato a pensare a Broadway e ai musical che, soprattutto negli ultimi anni hanno ripetutamente pescato nel repertorio di quel magico periodo musicale.

As those of us who spend significant time in the theatre know, the last six months have been very difficult. With canceled productions, performers out of work, and audiences without the live entertainment that enlightens and enriches their lives, there has been much uncertainty, on top of all the concerns for our own health and well-being. As someone who used to be in the audience reviewing productions almost every week pre-pandemic, I have missed the regular cadence of seeing, and writing about theatre. So, while we wait for things to get back to normal (or a new normal), I wanted to take a moment to spotlight some of the local creative professionals here in Orlando who bring theatrical magic to life on stage. To start, I sat down with Cliff Price, the creative designer behind some of the beautiful and creative scenic designs that audiences have seen in theaters across Central Florida over the last twenty years. Cliff shared with me his creative process, his perspective on the importance of good design and some of his favorite past designs.
