Theatre Design Specialist Roger Morgan talks about how his education in scenic and lighting design and backstage experience helped determine his focus in the field of architecture. He works on new designs as well as restorations, fully evaluating the existing damage and work required. For the Nederlander Theatre, left in "grungy" condition that suited the long-running musical Rent which closed in 2008, Morgan referred back to historical records and photos. Morgan paid close attention to the original architectural details and interior lighting, and gave the theatre a fresh exterior highlighting the arches and original brick as well as a new marquee.
