From the Publisher:

In each technical area'scene construction, lighting, sound, costume, and makeup'design considerations precede construction.
Design is considered as both an art closely integrated with the director's, actor's, and playwright's vision and a craft that provides practical solutions for the physical manipulation of stage space.
Health and safety precautions for the backstage crew appear throughout in boxes labeled 'Safety Tips.'
The use and effects of color on the stage are illustrated in full color examples in Chp. 6, including lighting and costume design analyses of Terra Nova and Cabaret.
The text includes a running glossary of terms, boxed in-depth discussions of selected topics, and extensive illustrations of technical tools, equipment, and exemplary play design.
'Design Inspiration' boxes show how professional designers create the desired look (with examples from The Mystery of Irma Vep and Twelfth Night).
More than 20 new photos update the equipment sections.
The section on scene production tools is now up-to-date and includes more current technology.
The coverage of computers is now integrated throughout the appropriate chapters.
A new appendix has been added ('Revised Standard Graphic Language for Lighting Designers'), and the Listserv appendix has been updated.
Technical information has been updated throughout.
