Design and lighting have a close relationship, as lighting plays a crucial role in enhancing the overall design of a space or product. Proper lighting design can help create a certain mood or atmosphere, highlight important elements, and improve functionality and safety.
Lighting can be used to accentuate the design of a space or product, drawing attention to particular features or elements. For example, accent lighting can be used to highlight artwork or architectural features in a room, while task lighting can be used to provide functional illumination for specific tasks such as reading or cooking.
Lighting can also be used to create a particular mood or atmosphere in a space. Warm lighting can create a cozy and inviting atmosphere, while cooler lighting can create a more modern and sophisticated feel. Lighting can also be used to create a sense of drama or excitement, such as in theatrical or retail settings.
In product design, lighting can play a role in enhancing the appearance and functionality of a product. For example, a well-designed desk lamp not only provides adequate illumination for work tasks, but can also add to the overall aesthetic of the workspace.
Overall, the relationship between design and lighting is a symbiotic one, with each element enhancing and complementing the other. Effective lighting design can greatly enhance the overall design of a space or product, while thoughtful design can ensure that lighting is used to its full potential.
Richard Charles Rodgers (June 28, 1902 - December 30, 1979) was an American composer of the music for more than 900 songs and 40 Broadway musicals. He also composed music for films and television. He is best known for his songwriting partnerships with the lyricists Lorenz Hart and Oscar Hammerstein II. His compositions have had a significant impact on popular music down to the present day, and have an enduring broad appeal. Rodgers is one of only two persons to have won an Oscar, a Grammy, an Emmy, a Tony Award, and a Pulitzer Prize (Marvin Hamlisch is the other). In 1919, Richard met Lorenz Hart, thanks to Phillip Leavitt, a friend of Richard's older brother. Rodgers and Hart struggled for years in the field of musical comedy, writing a number of amateur shows. They made their professional debut with the song "Any Old Place With You", featured in the 1919 Broadway musical comedy A Lonely Romeo. Their first professional production was the 1920 Poor Little Ritz Girl. Their next professional show, The Melody Man, did not premiere until 1924. Rodgers was considering quitting show business altogether to sell children's underwear, when he and Hart finally broke through in 1925. They wrote the songs for a benefit show presented by the prestigious Theatre Guild, called The Garrick Gaieties, and the critics found the show fresh and delightful. Only meant to run one day, the Guild knew they had a success and allowed it to re-open later. The show's biggest hit - the song that Rodgers believed "made" Rodgers and Hart - was "Manhattan." The two were now a Broadway songwriting force. Rodgers and Irving Berlin (r) circa 1960
Throughout the rest of the decade, the duo wrote several hit shows for both Broadway and London, including Dearest Enemy(1925), The Girl Friend (1926), Peggy-Ann (1926), A Connecticut Yankee (1927), and Present Arms (1928). Their 1920s shows produced standards such as "Here In My Arms", "Mountain Greenery", "Blue Room", "My Heart Stood Still" and "You Took Advantage of Me." With the Depression in full swing during the first half of the 1930s, the team sought greener pastures in Hollywood. The hardworking Rodgers later regretted these relatively fallow years, but he and Hart did write a number of classic songs and film scores while out west, including Love Me Tonight(1932) (directed by Rouben Mamoulian, who would later direct Rodgers' Oklahoma! on Broadway), which introduced three standards: "Lover", "Mimi", and "Isn't It Romantic?." Rodgers also wrote a melody for which Hart wrote three consecutive lyrics that did not fly. The fourth lyric resulted in one of their most famous songs, "Blue Moon." Other film work includes the scores to The Phantom President (1932), starring George M. Cohan, Hallelujah, I'm a Bum (1933), starring Al Jolson, and, in a quick return after having left Hollywood, Mississippi(1935), starring Bing Crosby and W.C. Fields. In 1935, they returned to Broadway and began writing with a vengeance, resulting in an almost unbroken string of hit shows that ended only with Hart's death in 1943. Among the most notable are Jumbo(1935), On Your Toes (1936, which included the ballet "Slaughter on Tenth Avenue", choreographed by George Balanchine), Babes In Arms (1937), I Married an Angel (1938), The Boys From Syracuse (1938), Pal Joey (1940), and their last original work, By Jupiter (1942). Rodgers also contributed to the book on several of these shows. Many of the songs from these shows are still sung and remembered, including "The Most Beautiful Girl in the World", "My Romance", "Little Girl Blue", "I'll Tell the Man in the Street", "There's a Small Hotel", "Where or When", "My Funny Valentine", "The Lady Is a Tramp", "Falling in Love with Love", "Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered", and "Wait Till You See Her." In 1939 he wrote the ballet Ghost Town for the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo, with choreography by Marc Platoff . == : Main article: Rodgers and HammersteinHis partnership with Hart having problems because of the lyricist's unreliability and declining health, Rodgers began working with Oscar Hammerstein II, with whom he had previously written a number of songs (before ever working with Lorenz Hart). Their first musical, the groundbreaking hit, Oklahoma! (1943), marked the beginning of the most successful partnership in American musical theatre history. Their work revolutionized the form. What was once a collection of songs, dances and comic turns held together by a tenuous plot became an integrated work of art. The team went on to create four more hits that are among the most popular of all musicals and were each made into successful films: Carousel (1945), South Pacific (1949, a Pulitzer Prize winner), The King and I (1951), and The Sound of Music (1959). Other shows include the minor hit, Flower Drum Song (1958), as well as relative failures Allegro(1947), Me and Juliet (1953) and Pipe Dream (1955). They also wrote the score to the film State Fair (1945) (which was remade in 1962 with Pat Boone), and a special TV musical of Cinderella (1957). Their collaboration produced many well-known songs, including "Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin'", "People Will Say We're in Love", "If I Loved You", "You'll Never Walk Alone", "It Might as Well Be Spring", "Some Enchanted Evening", "Getting to Know You", "My Favorite Things", "The Sound of Music", "Sixteen Going on Seventeen", "Climb Ev'ry Mountain", "Do-Re-Mi", and "Edelweiss", Hammerstein's last song. Much of Rodgers's work with both Hart and Hammerstein was orchestrated by Robert Russell Bennett. Rodgers composed twelve themes, which Bennett scored for the 26-episode World War II television documentary Victory at Sea (1952-53). This NBC production pioneered the "compilation documentary"--programming based on pre-existing footage--and was eventually broadcast in dozens of countries. Rodgers won an Emmy for the theme music for the ABC documentary Winston Churchill: The Valiant Years, scored by Eddie Sauter and Robert Emmett Dolan. In 1950, Rodgers and Hammerstein received The Hundred Year Association of New York's Gold Medal Award "in recognition of outstanding contributions to the City of New York." In 1954, Rodgers conducted the New York Philharmonic Orchestra in excerpts from Victory at Sea, Slaughter on Tenth Avenue and the Carousel Waltz for a special LP released by Columbia Records. Rodgers and Hammerstein musicals earned a total of 35 Tony Awards, 15 Academy Awards, two Pulitzer Prizes, two Grammy Awards, and two Emmy Awards. == After Hammerstein's death in 1960, Rodgers wrote both words and music for his first new Broadway project No Strings (1962, which earned two Tony Awards). The show was a minor hit and featured perhaps his last great song, "The Sweetest Sounds." He went on to work with lyricists Stephen Sondheim (protege of Hammerstein), Sheldon Harnick, and Martin Charnin, with uneven results. At its 1978 commencement ceremonies, Barnard College awarded Rodgers its highest honor, the Barnard Medal of Distinction. Rodgers died in 1979 at age 77 after surviving cancer of the jaw, a heart attack, and a laryngectomy. He was cremated and his ashes were scattered at sea. In 1990, the 46th Street Theatre was renamed "The Richard Rodgers Theatre" in his memory. In 1999, Rodgers and Hart were each commemorated on United States postage stamps. 2002 was the centennial year of Rodgers's birth, celebrated worldwide with books, retrospectives, performances, new recordings of his music, and a Broadway revival of Oklahoma!. The BBC Proms that year devoted an entire evening to Rodgers' music including a concert pertformance of Oklahoma! Several American schools are named after Richard Rodgers. Alec Wilder wrote the following about Rodgers: Of all the writers whose songs are considered and examined in this book, those of Rodgers show the highest degree of consistent excellence, inventiveness, and sophistication...[A]fter spending weeks playing his songs, I am more than impressed and respectful: I am astonished. In 1930, Rodgers married Dorothy Belle Feiner. Their daughter, Mary, is the composer of Once Upon a Mattress and an author of children's books. The Rodgers later lost a daughter at birth, but another daughter, Linda, was born in the 1930s. Rodgers' grandson, Adam Guettel, also a musical theatre composer, won Tony Awards for Best Score and Best Orchestrations for The Light in the Piazza in 2005. Peter Melnick, another grandson, is the composer of Adrift In Macao, which debuted at the Philadelphia Theatre Company in 2005 and was produced Off Broadway in 2007.
No. The Tony Award ceremony is always held in New York City.
As of October 2019, 15 people have won EGOTs.
That phrasing might be a little misleading. The EGOT isn’t a specific award; it’s an accomplishment. To say that someone “has” an EGOT simply means they’ve won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony.
Here’s a list of the 15 winners:
The term "EGOT" was invented by Miami Vice actor Philip Michael Thomas, who mentioned the achievement in a 1984 interview. Thomas has not been nominated for any of the awards, but he did commission a gold EGOT pendant, which he wore around his neck (a decision parodied by Tracy Morgan on the sitcom 30 Rock).
To win an EGOT, a celebrity can win any award in any competitive category. Several entertainers who technically have all four awards aren’t typically considered EGOT achievers because they won non-competitive awards (Barbra Streisand, for instance, received a "Star of the Decade" Tony Award in 1970). And while the general consensus is to count Daytime Emmys toward EGOTs (the E in Goldberg’s EGOT, for example, is a Daytime Emmy), there is some contention over whether it should be restricted to the primetime segment of the awards.
It’s also possible to achieve an EGOT posthumously—Audrey Hepburn, for example, completed hers about a year after her death with a 1994 Grammy win for her children’s album Audrey Hepburn’s Enchanted Tales.
More than 40 entertainers are one award away from an EGOT, including Viola Davis, Cher, Common, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Dick Van Dyke, Julie Andrews, and Helen Mirren.
