I’m Rachel Langley, a scenic designer and scenic artist based in New York City. I have studied fine-arts since childhood. My passion for working in the performing arts started in high school, but developed more fully in college where I realized I could combine the two things I love through design and scenic art. In my design work I strive to emphasize the story, imagination, and maximize the visual aesthetic with clear and concise imagery.
Highlights from my past work include: Scenic Designer for Peter and the Starcatcher (Pennington Players), Scenic Designer for James and the Giant Peach (Princeton Day School), Scenic Designer for Bakersfield Mist (Pegasus Theatre Project); Disappearances (Lost Nation Theater); The Yellow Boat , First Lady Suite, Other Desert Cities (James Madison University). Asst. Scenic Designer to Chelsea Clark for The Cherry Orchard (James Madison University), and to Edward T. Morris for The Cradle Will Rock (Connecticut College). Additionally I have many years of scenic art experience through school, work at several shops in NYC like Infinite Scenic and Kondiut. I have also spent the past five summers at The Weston Playhouse as a scenic artist. The past two seasons I was the Scenic Charge Artist managing two to three painters, communication with designers, scheduling, budgets, and scenic treatments over the course of seven shows.
I am currently working as a freelance scenic designer and scenic artist in New York City.
