Kevin Adams, one of Fast Company’s 100 Most Creative People in Business

Kevin Adams is on the leading edge of the post-incandescent age on Broadway, exploiting the potential of CFL bulbs, fluorescent tubes, glass and flex neon, and the latest LED technology. His work for Spring Awakening -- brilliant white light for the 19th-century play's scenes and saturated color from what he calls "electric objects" for the songs -- won him a Tony in 2007. He picked up a second Tony in 2008 for The 39 Steps, a third in 2010 for his lighting of the Green Day musical American Idiot and a fourth in 2014 for Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Another Adams hit: a fabulous wall of light for the musical Passing Strange. One admirer said it looked "like Mark Rothko meets Japanese pop."
