Debbie Millman | Audio

David Korins

When David Korins was little he spent a lot of time moving furniture around in his childhood bedroom. Little did anyone know back then that he would grow up to be one of Broadway's most celebrated set designers. Korins designs are as varied as they are gorgeous. From the stages of Hamilton and War Paint, to restaurant interiors, and performance stages for Kanye West and Lady Gaga, Korins is a master. He transports the audience in time and space, creating moods and spectacles that envelop us in another world.

Debbie talks with set designer David Korins about his impressive career on Broadway, his design process, and his latest projects. "There are things that my aesthetic tends to bend to, I put those in my home. And not necessarily in the environment of doing for the client."
