The Boxer is a comedic silent play written by Matt Lyle which performed at the Athenaeum in Chicago, summer 2014. One highlight of this production was the brilliant lighting design by Craig Kidwell using low pressure sodium bulbs which gave our entire stage a colorless sepia effect and allowed for a vibrant Wizard of Oz-style dream ballet.
