catherine cornell - set designer
Catherine Cornell is a versatile set designer who is a storyteller at heart. She believes that the space in which a story is told can be a character in its own right. She looks for honesty and joy in each project while finding creative ways to navigate that line between the needs of the piece and the needs of reality.
Having worked in theatres large and small on both west and east coasts, she is attuned to the interconnectedness of the many facets to a production. Some recent notable projects include MacBeth (Red Bull Theatre), MacBeth (Seattle Repertory Theatre, winner of the 2018 Gregory Award for Outstanding Scenic Design), Buyer and Cellar (Seattle Rep.), Harvey (UVA's Heritage Theatre Festival), and shows on both ACT Theatre’s Allen and Falls stages.
