94. Kevin Adams

Lighting designer

Kevin Adams is on the leading edge of the post-incandescent age on Broadway, exploiting the potential of CFL bulbs, fluorescent tubes, glass and flex neon, and the latest LED technology. His work for Spring Awakening--brilliant white light for the 19th-century play's scenes and saturated color from what he calls "electric objects" for the songs--won him a Tony in 2007. He picked up a second Tony in 2008 for The 39 Steps. Another Adams hit: a fabulous wall of light for the musical Passing Strange. One admirer said it looked "like Mark Rothko meets Japanese pop." Adams also lit the current revival of Hair. -- by B. Martin
