Continuing case study of professional practices: John Napier
Continuing my case study of professional practices I researched a set designer: John Napier was born on 1st March 1944 in London. He works as a set designer for Broadway for theatrical performances based in London.
He studied at Hornsey College of Art and then continued to study set design at the Central School of Arts and Crafts. Napier has worked for many notable companies including: Associate Designer at the Royal Shakespeare Company, Designer for the National Theatre and has also designed for the Opera House for Glyndebourne. Others located in west London also consist of him designing for Children of Eden, Who’s afraid of Virigina Woolf? And Jesus Crist Superstar.
As he had completed works for many companies, Napier was quite well known and enabled himself to gain many big oppertunities to produce big theatre proctions such as Les Miserables.
