BEST LIGHTING DESIGN: Brian Smallheer

Somehow the lighting designer for Jobsite Theater’s Einstein’s Dreams had to convince us that five female and four male actors dressed in white were illustrating how time turns in circles, freezes, becomes sticky, becomes visible, comes to an end and runs backwards. With the help of Brian Smallheer’s fine lighting, even the most bizarre possibilities were treated with impressionistic, almost hypnotic lyricism. Beautiful work.
