Dede's Green Scene: Broadway's Trash to our Treasure

Dede Tabak | Apr 2, 2014 | Entertainment and Media | 


They say that one person’s trash is another person’s treasure. And Anna Louizos agrees. Louizos, a Tony award-nominated scenic designer, recently launched the Broadway Design Exchange, a Web site where designers can sell their work, which would have otherwise been thrown away. Louizos has worked on numerous Broadway productions including, Roger and Hammerstein’s Cinderella, Avenue Q and In the Heights. In the past, she sadly watched all of the beautiful costumes, props, models, sketches and designs from the shows, end up in the trash when the curtain went down. "Those things have value to people," Louizos said to the Associated Press.
