In this long belated episode I speak to designer Michael Gianfrancesco.  Michael and I worked on his second production after he was out of Concordia University in 1998 and since then he has become one of the top designers in the country, working on new works, opera, ballet and now appears yearly at the Stratford and Shaw Festivals.  Michael and I spoke in the design office at Shaw in May 2015 about his show there this summer.
