Creative returns to gig for second time
David Rockwell has been selected as production designer for the 82nd Academy Awards, marking his second time with the production.
Oscarcast producers Adam Shankman and Bill Mechanic asked Rockwell to return because of his creativity and familiarity with the venue — the Kodak Theater was designed by Rockwell’s firm.
His design credits include Broadway productions of “Hairspray” and “Legally Blonde,” as well as the upcoming legit version of “Catch Me if You Can.”
The Oscars air March 7.
