From the Stoop, 2015
JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH (Adventure Theatre MTC)
"The Adventure Theatre production team proved itself ambitious and resourceful, pulling together an elaborate set by Katie Sullivan, eye-catching shadow and rod puppetry by Andrea “Dre” Moore, colorful lighting by Rob Siler, imaginative props managed by Ellison Roberts and April Carter, and stand-out costumes by Jeffrey Meek to set this story in vibrant motion."
"Costume Designer Jeffrey Meek has created beautiful and intricate costumes for the over-sized bugs. And along with the incredibly creative use of umbrellas, puppets, and projections, by Props and Puppetry Designer Andrea Moore, Scenic Designer Katie Sullivan, and Lighting Designer Rob Siler, the magical adventure of James comes to life."
"Besides Mr. Baron's wonderful direction, he has some great support by the stellar design team."
LES MISERABLES (Riverside Theatre)
“Lighting designer Rob Siler paints the stage with light and shadow, creating at times a chiaroscuro effect. His use of a bright white light to suggest death and transcendence into heaven is evocative of the original Cameron Macintosh production.”
“With Cornell’s direction and particularly his set, ravishingly lit by Rob Siler, it is darker, moodier, more telling of the times and much easier to follow.”
“The best part of ‘Les Mis’ was the somber atmosphere created through lighting and dark set colors. Those elements take you back to 19th century France around the time of the July Revolutions of 1832, and they show the living conditions of the most disenfranchised portions of society.”
RED (Riverside Theatre)
“Kudos also to lighting designer Rob Siler who paints the stage with evocative mood and Marc Dodson whose costume design adds to the stage realism.”
