Abstract: Mart Crowley's The Boys in the Band was chosen because it contained the appropriate qualities necessary for the educational development of the designer. It is a dramatic-comedy affording the opportunity to design within the confines of realism. The thesis is divided into three parts: (1) Part I: Preproduction Research; (2) Part II: The Technical Production; and (3) Part III: Observation. Part I will include the analysis of stylistic considerations and a discussion of the design approach. Part II will be illustrative containing the set and costume renderings, the working drawings, light plot, poster design, light cues, sound plot, and properties. Part III will be a detailed criticism evaluating the visual design elements of the production.
