Lighting design

Jane Cox is an Irish lighting designer for theatre, opera and dance based in Brooklyn, New York. 2015-2016 season highlights include Color Purple currently running on Broadway; Noises Off (Broadway); Hamlet at the Barbican (with Benedict Cumberbatch); a new musical of Amelie; Roe at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival; and The Flick by Annie Baker at the National Theatre in London. Jane has been lucky enough to work in Ireland with the brilliant Corn Exchange on a few occasions; with Olwen Fouere and Judy Hegarty; and in America with many Irish artists (including with Joe Dowling during his tenure at the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis).

Other recent designs include productions at the Sydney Opera House, Houston Grand Opera, Lincoln Center, Roundabout Theater, Public Theater and the Chocolate Factory in London.

Jane is a company member of the Monica Bill Barnes Dance Company, has an ongoing relationship with the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, and enjoys long standing collaborations with directors John Doyle, Sam Gold and Bill Rauch, among others, as well as with choreographer Doug Varone, with whom she was awarded a Bessie for light and dance. She has been teaching about light and theater design to anyone who will listen at Princeton University since 2007.

Jane Cox has been represented by the Rolfe Company in New York since 2001. Mickey@rolfeco.com and Casey@rolfeco.com. Tel: +1 212-757-6756.
