Set Designer Mimi Lien Starts The Great Comet Design at the Front Door

by Kathy Eddy

While set designer Mimi Lien has won the 2017 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Set Design in a Musical and is up for a Tony Award as well for her set design on The Great Comet, her design didn't stop with the stage or even the audience house. She has also transformed the lobby of the Imperial Theatre, transporting audience members from the  the moment they step inside from the street.
