The gorgeous Broadway productions of Follies, Chinglish and Death of a Salesman, as well as the off-Broadway drama Tribes, all received 2012 Henry Hewes Design Awards. These four productions beat out 82 other nominees for the prestigious design awards in set, costume, lighting and notable effects.
The Henry Hewes Design Award for Best Scenic Design went to David Korins for Chinglish, Best Costume Design went to Gregg Barnes for Follies, Best Lighting Design went to Brian MacDevitt for Death of a Salesman and Notable Effects in Sound Design went to Daniel Kluger for Tribes. The winners will be recognized in a ceremony on October 29.
The awards, which honor outstanding design in New York City theater, were founded back in 1965 and were originally called the Maharam Awards. Later they were renamed the American Theatre Wing Design Awards, and finally in 1999 they became the Henry Hewes, named for the noted critic who created the awards and served as a board member on the Wing until his death in 2006.
