Episode #13 Sholem Dolgoy / by Michael Kruse

In this episode, I interview my old mentor Sholem Dolgoy about his history and career.  We met at Ryerson Theatre School in Toronto, Ontario, where he is the head of the production program. Sholem, like many senior designers in Canada, entered the profession through the school of hard knocks and has risen to be a leading designer and educator in Canada.  In this chat we talk about his successes and failures in the 1970's and 80's and his awakening in terms of the use of colour while learning from great lighting designers like Nicholas Cernovitch and Thomas Skelton.
