Alumni Spotlight: Colin McGurk

Colin McGurk
While at Lehigh University, I designed sets for Woyzeck, and A Midsummer Night’s Dream, designed lights for one act plays in the black box, and served as props director, master electrician, carpenter, and painter. During my apprenticeship, I designed the set for Inherit the Wind, and received the mentoring necessary to be accepted to graduate school. I received an MFA in scenic design from UC San Diego in 2011. Since then I’ve worked in NYC with Alexander Dodge as Associate Designer and Studio Manager. I supervised two Broadway productions (A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder and Anastasia) as well as the corresponding national tours. I supervised over fifty projects, including Off Broadway, Regional Theatre, Opera and specialty projects. In addition, I’ve pursued my freelance design career Off Broadway, and regionally at Hartford Stage and LA Opera.
