Hugh Hardy Passes Away

One of America's greatest and most prolific theatre architects, Hugh Hardy, passed away on Thursday at the age of 84.  We had the great privilege of being the lighting designers for Hugh and his team on the renovation of the public spaces of the New Victory Theatre on 42nd Street, which will open later this year.  His wit, generosity, and knowledge were always evident and always appreciated.  Here is his obituary in the New York Times.
