MARCUS DILLIARD in American Theatre Magazine
In the current issue of the American Theatre Magazine (Oct '11), lighting designer and faculty member Marcus Dilliard, briefly discusses his challenging experience caused by the producing companies financial constraints while lighting The Deception, a 2008 co-production by Theatre de la Jeune Lune and La Jolla Playhouse. A striking color photo by director Dominique Serrand with set by David Coggins and costumes by Sonya Berlovitz shows actress Emily Gunyou Halaas bathed in brilliant light. This photographic image was also featured in a U.S. exhibition as part of a tribute to artists and companies that have vanished in the past four years. The text of Marivaux's The Deception was adapted by actor Stephen Epp and director Dominique Serrand.
