Faculty Member, Alum Earn Tony Award Nominations

Jun 07, 2010

Faculty member Scott Lehrer and alumnus Alexander Dodge '93 were nominated for 2010 Tony Awards for their behind-the-scenes work on two critically acclaimed Broadway productions

For his sound design of Arthur Miller's A View From the Bridge, which starred Liev Schreiber and Scarlett Johansson, Lehrer was nominated for his third Tony Award in as many years. He won the Award for best sound design in 2008—the first year the category was recognized—for his work on the musical South Pacific. Having been nominated again in 2009, he's now earned nominations for best sound design every year since the Awards Administration Committee voted to add the category in 2007.

The New York Times called A View From The Bridge "a beautifully observed production" in its review, and featured an audio sample of Lehrer's sound design here.

Dodge earned his first Tony nomination this year for his scenic design of the play Present Laughter.  Said The New York Times in its review, "Alexander Dodge's eye-popping set is a bit of a scene stealer itself."

For a complete list of nominees; for a list of winners.
