Lighting Designer Howell Binkley is enjoying a period in his career that most designers dream of and he has certainly worked hard to achieve it He has no less than five shows on Broadway at the moment, including Avenue Q1 Jersey Boys (for which he won a 2006 Tony), his 2008 Tony-nominated work for In the Heights, this season's Guys and Dolls and finally West Side Story- for which he received a 2009 Tony nomination. Binkley needed to merge his lighting design cohesively with the screen's output I think that the video screen was a key element and I love the way it moves the show.
