Meet Set Designer David Julin:

 In News

What is more enchanting than walking into a theater and being transported to a different time and place by the stage set? For the past 13 years David Julin has waved his magic wand at Elmwood, transforming its stage with his set design and decor.

Applying his talent, and his experiences during his 44-year career in visual presentation at some of New York City’s most prestigious department stores, i.e. Bloomingdales, Saks 5th Avenue, he has designed 13 sets for Elmwood and dressed even more. David says, “I found working on my first set design (for Almost Maine, directed by Alison Costello), fascinating and knew right away I had found my creative outlet at Elmwood.”

Besides stimulating his creative juices at Elmwood, David enjoys just being part of the theater milieu. “My favorite shows are musicals, but I enjoy the edgy contemporary plays Elmwood produces, which create food for thought and stir up conversation.”

David has been awarded best scenic design recognition from the Broadway World site for his Elmwood sets for On Golden Pond, and Next to Normal. For his theater efforts “above and beyond,” he has received the distinctive Elmwood Golden Elm Leaf award. Some of his extra projects have been coordinating and installing lobby displays, helping to curate and install the large art gallery exhibit at last year’s Elmwood Gala, upholstering furniture for our upcoming production of The Play That Goes Wrong, plus creating and maintaining the lovely patio garden welcoming Elmwood patrons.

Yes, his magic works there too!
