As the Denver Center Theatre Company's principal designer, Bill Curley has fashioned an impressive string of stage settings over the years. There was the Venice Beach storefront set, complete with a flying plane inviting patrons to renew their subscriptions, that served as the backdrop for The Comedy of Errors
; the romantic cyclorama and cobblestone walks that enveloped The Beauty Queen of Leenane
; and the magical Parisian watering hole that housed Picasso at the Lapin Agile
. But Curley's greatest accomplishment occurred last season, when he served as Tantalus
designer Dionysis Fotopoulos's assistant while also mounting the incredible exhibit that accompanied the twelve-hour epic (the traveling show's curator publicly acknowledged Curley's contribution on the exhibit's opening night). Clearly, Curley is that rare creative individual -- the kind who quietly gets it done.
