Lester Polakov Honored

USITT's 1999 Distinguished Achievement Award in Scene Design winner has been honored with the TDF/Irene Sharaff Lifetime Achievement Award. Lester Polakov is noted for both his work as a designer and as founder of the Lester Polakov Studio of Stage Design, later known as the Studio and Forum of Stage Design. His extensive credits include scenic, costume, and lighting design.

We congratulate Mr. Polakov, who has been in ill health, on this most recent honor.

Stroemel Stars in Nashville

Those traveling to the recent USITT Annual Conference & Stage Expo via Nashville had an opportunity to see USITT's own Mo Stroemel performing at the famed Bluebird Cafe. This is not the only venue in the Nashville area where Mr. Stroemel has displayed his musical talents, but it is the one most familiar with those outside the country music scene.

Conference Thanks

We again want to thank all those who participated in the 2006 Annual Conference & Stage Expo. From the first Professional Development Workshop to the closing remarks, nothing would have been possible without the hundreds of volunteers who give their time, experience, and knowledge to make the Conference a success.

As we all catch our breaths, planning for the 2007 event in Phoenix is already underway, with Houston in 2008 not far behind.
