Sound Designer Dan Moses Schreier talks The Iceman Cometh, Mentorship and Early Days

For the recent Broadway revival of Eugene O’Neill’s The Iceman Cometh, sound designer Dan Moses Schreier created a historically-accurate sound design for director George C. Wolfe’s production. The play received eight American Theatre Wing Tony Award nominations, including all four design categories; it was the fifth Tony nomination for Schreier. Stage Directions spoke with the designer on his creation of the sounds of 1912 New York for The Iceman Cometh, including some research for period-appropriate songs and sound elements as well as his thoughts on mentoring and advice for someone considering a career in theater.
