In addition to Christopher Barreca, head of Scene Design at CalArts School of Theater, who earned Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle nominations for his set designs in Rocky, several other CalArtians have also been recognized for their work in the New York theater scene.

Alumnus Kevin Adams  (Theater MFA 86) also earned a 2014 Outer Critics Circle award nomination last week for Outstanding Lighting Design and a Tony nomination yesterday for Best Lighting Design of a Musical for his work on Hedwig and the Angry Inchwhich currently stars Neil Patrick Harris.

Adams competes for the Tony Award against two former heads of the CalArts Lighting Design Program: Christopher Ackerlind, nominated for his lighting on Rocky, and Donald Holder, nominated for The Bridges of Madison County.

The 2014 Annual Drama Desk Award nominations were also announced last week with Austin Switser (Theater BFA 04) earning a nod for Outstanding Projection Design for his work on Sontag: Reborn.
