THC: What is the defining moment of your arts career at Harvard?
BL: I’m currently designing the set for “Hart Crane” on the Loeb Mainstage. I’ve spent the last four years working on various shows in the space, but this is my first time designing a set. I feel so very privileged to be working on this project with Matt [A. Aucoin ‘12] and a very talented staff and cast. It feels like the culmination of all our years of dedication, and it’s just so rewarding to see it all come to fruition on this scale.
THC: Greatest artistic rival at Harvard?
BL: I wouldn’t say I have a rival, but that’s not to say that we aren’t competitive. Theater is an inherently collaborative process, and we all push each other to “make art”—to make something new and exciting and beautiful. The goal is to push the limits of what can be achieved.
THC: What is the funniest/strangest arts event you’ve been involved in?
BL: I was producing “Antony and Cleopatra” for a good friend who insisted that his high school teacher’s snake be involved in the suicide scene. So we arranged for the snake to live in the theater, and it repaid us by almost burning down the building. True story. That is one of the most stressful phone calls I have ever received.
