Bob Boyett - Producer
"Adrianne emerged into the theater, opera,
and dance world of the ‘80 s with Outrageously imaginative, ferociously smart, and fiercely devoted to exactingresearch, she was from the beginning driven by a perfectionist ethic of realization, refinement, and her own breathtaking clarity. Her quality of line exemplifies her commitment to truth-telling. "
Peter Selllars - Director
"Adrianne and I go way back. Together, we’ve been through a whole catalog of triumphs, canceled projects, re-designs, glamorous opening nights, missed flights, fun dates, relationships, Acts of God, natural and unnatural disasters. She is a longtime friend with a great brain and a sense of nonsense. Adrianne has provided the settings for some of the most amazing productions I’ve ever witnessed. "
Mark Morris - Choreographer
"I had the pleasure of working with Adrianne Lobel extensively in the 1990s after followed that experience with a play I also wrote Luck, Pluck, and Virtue at the La Jolla Playhouse. Her wonderful sets were very imaginative and beautifully set the tone for a highly stylized theater piece. Other works that followed were Twelve Dreams for Lincoln Center Theater, and my collaboration with Stephen Sondheim, Passion and a new adaptation of The Diary of Anne Frank, both for Broadway."
James Lapine - Director
"As a director, collaborating with Adrianne Lobel on a number of productions was a true gift to me. She is one of those rare designers who is able to completely get inside of a piece and make the director’s job more fluid by giving them a palette to create the world of the story. She is a hands-on designer, very much what I would call “old school”, who is in the scene shop, and in the paint shop and in the prop shop working with craft people to exactly execute her vision"
Francesca Zambello - Director
"Working with Adrianne Lobel is a Total Joy! Her work is artistically and intellectually rigorous. But it’s not only her keen insight into each piece, her seemingly innate genius at knowing what it should look like, her gorgeous sense of proportion, her ability to abstract to the absolute essentials nor her complete and detailed presentation of the designs. It’s a fantastic collaboration: great work, great friendship and a ton of laughs. I am so pleased that several of our eff orts have made it into this book. I hope you enjoy them."
