Benjamin Gantose, Lighting Designer Download My Resume
“Working together to develop a design concept requires a certain generosity of spirit. There is something about having to adjust and adapt in order to accommodate another artist’s ideas that can sometimes produce extraordinary results. The only essential component of the collaboration is to approach it in a spirit of mutual respect and with an open mind and heart.” - Michael Eagan, Theatrical Designer “A writer can write, and a painter can paint independently. Theater is different. Everything we do here has to be an act of collaboration. And here, everyone counts.” - Jim Nicola, Artistic Director of the New York Theater Workshop Benjamin Gantose is a Cleveland based designer, and associate. Benjamin grew up in Berea, OH and attended the College Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati where he studied Theatrical Design and Production with an emphasis on Lighting Design. Benjamin has been involved in both scenic and lighting design for works spanning ballet and modern dance, scripted and devised theatre, musical theatre, opera, and theme parks.
