Brendan Boston is a New York City based theatre designer. His designs are grounded in a rigorous process, often inspired by a source text and collaboration with other artists. Collages of color and texture are inherent parts of his design process, and the qualities expressed in materials and construction details support his overall design. He believes that being a designer is to be part of a larger conversation communicating ideas of a society to a modern audience.
Scenic design credits include the world premiere of Describe the Night (NYU) by Rajiv Joseph, the U.S. premiere of Terror by Ferdinand von Schirach, Chris Gethard: Career Suicide (Off-Broadway), The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui (Lyra Theater Company). Regional associate design credits include Der Rosenkavalier (Metropolitan Opera), Lohengrin (Royal Opera House), M. Butterfly (Broadway), The Twilight Zone (Almeida Theater), Ride the Cyclone (MCC Theater).
Brendan earned his Master of Fine Arts from Tisch School of the Arts at New York University and has gone on to work at numerous theater and opera companies around the world.
