Keeping the Light On

Design and Production

My office is in the basement of The Harvey complex, across from the Design and Production studio. The light is always on there, and you can find Luke D'Alessandro, Design and Production senior, at his drafting table in between classes, surrounded by research and sketches. When I peek my head into the studio, he is at work on a freelance gig that will come to fruition over break as he designs and builds costumes for a Winter Guard team back home in New England. He tells me about his current D&P assignment for Pygmalian, shows me the stack of books he's reading for upcoming Amadeus, and tells me about his design plans for Intermester. Luke is happiest when industrous, but promises to take time over break to relax.
