Lighting Designer for Theatre, Dance, Opera, and Puppetry
A little about me (so that you know I am a real person and not a spammer!)
The 2005 Tony Award. The 2006 Obie. The 2007 Pulitzer Prize for fiction. These are among the many awards that Lighting Designer Jeffrey E. Salzberg has never won. He has, however, designed the lighting for theatre, dance, and puppetry troupes in New York and also in the United States of America. In addition to lighting design and arts administration, Jeff also designs web pages (His work can be seen at www.jeffsalzberg.com). He views this upcoming season with great anticipation; after all, next year's Nobel Prizes have not yet been announced.

The things I like most about the Sarasota/Manatee area
JEFFREY E. SALZBERGhas designed the lighting for dance, theater, opera, and puppetry all over the United States and in Canada. He has lit several solos, including A Shropshire Lad, featuring former New York City Ballet principal dancer Peter Boal, for Manhattan-based Dance as Ever, and has also lit a new work created on Royal Ballet's Alexandra Ansanelli. DanceView Magazine said of A Shropshire Lad, "It was an extraordinarily moving piece, especially the elegiac last song. . .where the effective lighting (by Jeffrey E. Salzberg) seemed both to box the dancer in and to elevate him above all human suffering."
Between Sand and Stars
With Sandglass Theater, he took Between Sand and Stars to the 8e Festival international des artes de la marionnette in Jonquière, Quebec. Jeff also designed the lighting for the Peccadillo Theater's Off-Broadway production of Room Service. NYTheatre.com said of the original Off-Off-Broadway production, "The...lighting by Jeffrey E. Salzberg...serve(s) the play effectively... with just the right touch of realism...." The New York Times has called his lighting, "ingeniously atmospheric." Jeff has lit such contemporary plays as Margaret Edson's Wit and A. R. Gurney's Far East, as well as Rebecca Gilman's Spinning into Butter. Many of his designs have won critical praise. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram called the lighting for To Turn Again, ". . .a devastating blend of image and sound." The Houston Chronicle, reviewing another production, said, "With its. . .lighting and dancing, the company has dramatically lifted the level of local dance." In Sarasota, he lit several productions for Florida Studio Theatre, Theatreworks, and the Sarasota Opera.
