Automatic TRANSCRIPT

This weekend at the seventy third annual Tony awards on Sunday. So today, we'll hear from someone who makes those Broadway shows come to life Dane, laugher designed sets and costumes, for the theatre including the set for the latest revival of Christopher Shinn's play dying city, which is playing now at the Tony Kaiser theater in New York City as it turns out, making theater involves a bit of economics.

We also get to deal in fantastical the magical the surreal. Obviously, like budget is it's always a factor. I have certainly worked on shows that have like twelve hundred dollar.
