The Marriage of Bette & Boo


Kathy and Chris recently worked on the lighting design for one of Rhode Island College's Mainstage Theatre productions, The Marriage of Bette & Boo by Christopher Durang. 

The career of most ALD employees began in the theatre and it's always nice to get back to our roots! 


Directed by Connie Crawford, the story followed the protagonist (Matt) down memory lane as he deals with his family's dysfunction. The show ran February 20-24 in the Helen Forman Theatre. Photos by Kate Noel Artistry.

Happy Opening - Fifth Third Bank!

Last Wednesday, Fifth Third Bank in Cincinnati, OH opened a museum on the ground floor of its headquarters building on Fountain Square to honor the bank’s 161-year history.

The Fifth Third Museum features exhibits to commemorate milestones in the bank’s history, such as the creation of Jeanie, the first shared online ATM network that Fifth Third launched in 1977. The exhibits were designed by Jack Rouse Associates (JRA) and we collaborated on the lighting design for the installations.

For more information, check out the full article about the opening by the Cincinnati Business Courier.
