about this episode
The Cheers to Puppeteers keep on coming! We're joined this time by Michael Curry whose firm Michael Curry Design has created the legendary puppet and scenic designs behind some of the world's most iconic productions. You know his work from Disney's The Lion King on Broadway, Cirque du Soleil, Shrek on Broadway, Lake of Dreams in Las Vegas, multiple Olympics opening ceremonies, and so much more.
We talk to Michael about his upbringing in a religious commune until the age of 18, discovering the joys of theater while working with Julie Taymor and Robert Lepage, and how a halloween costume landed him a million dollar contract from Siegfried and Roy. Don't miss this incredible conversation including a tour of his 55,000 sq.ft. Oregon workshop, his approach to the budgeting process, and how you can avoid creating generic work in just one minute. PLUS: he'll share with us the one most important thing in any artist's life.
