ERIC LEVENSON returns to the New Repertory Theatre after most recently designing Speed-the-Plow and Passing Strange. He designed sets and/or lights for sixteen New Rep shows before the company moved to Watertown and was the New Rep staff photographer for a decade. His recent scenic designs include Dames at Sea (Greater Boston Stage Company); The Rainmaker (Gloucester Stage); A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Othello (Actors’ Shakespeare Project); and numerous shows for SpeakEasy Stage Company, including Scottsboro Boys, Violet, Some Men, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, and BlackBird. Upcoming projects include scenic and lighting design for Every Brilliant Thing and scenic design for Allegiance (SpeakEasy Stage Company); and scenic design for Hair (Northeastern University). Eric enjoyed incorporating franquismo elements in the Man of La Mancha design. His father fought in the Abraham Lincoln Brigade in the Spanish Civil War, in recognition of which the participants were made honorary Spanish citizens in 1995.
