Professor of Theatre Arts Lanny Potts received a 2013 Wilde Award for the “Best Lighting Designer Of The Year.” The award honors his work on The Light in the Piazza this past summer at Farmers Alley Theatre. The Wilde Awards were established by Pride Source Media Group to honor the excellent work produced by Michigan’s professional theaters. The Wildes are presented by EncoreMichigan.com, the most comprehensive resource for news and information about the state’s professional theater industry. Its team of 10 critics reviewed 179 productions produced or presented by 47 theater companies across the state and narrowed the slate to 71 productions. Of the 71 productions nominated, the top-honored show was The Light in the Piazza with six awards, including Lanny’s.
