Richard Pilbrow to Keynote PLASA Focus Kansas City

New York, NY, USA — On May 20th at 9am, PLASA Focus: Kansas City’s Professional Development Program will kick-off with a keynote presentation sponsored by Group One’s Elektralite by renowned lighting designer and founder of Theatre Projects, Richard Pilbrow entitled “Light and Theatre – Epidaurus, the National Theatre to Kansas City.” Mr. Pilbrow will take the audience around the world from the National Theatre in London, currently celebrating its 50th anniversary, to the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts in Kansas City which opened in 2011.


This talk is a personal viewpoint of life in the theatre over 50 years. It discusses the remarkable changes in stage lighting, theatre technology, and theatre architecture.

I’ve been incredibly lucky and have combined the life of lighting designer, entrepreneur—founding Theatre Projects in 1957—West End theatre, film and TV producer, theatre design consultant, and author.

Along the way from the National Theatre with Sir Laurence Olivier to leading Theatre Projects Consultants on over 180 projects in 70 countries around the world, stage lighting and the world of theatre has seen dramatic changes. “
—Richard Pilbrow
