Jill BC Du Boff, League of Professional Theatre Women memberSound Designer
New York, New York USA

Where do I look for inspiration? As a sound designer, music is really important to me, I try to listen to as much music as possible, which is also the most fun part of my job. I listen to the content, the mix and the feeling the music evokes. I find music to be inspirational.

Two plays changed my life, Poona The F**kdog and other plays for Children written by Jeff Goode and produced by the Adobe Theatre Company, and The Grey Zone by Tim Blake Nelson produced by MCC. Poona taught me how to really think outside of the box and how to invent sound and The Grey Zone taught me about subtlety and how powerful sound can be in live theatre.

My favorite ways to escape are running, reading and knitting. Sometimes listening to music, but only sometimes, since it can also feel like work.

My favorite book: The History of Love by Nicole Krause
Line from a play; “Come to my tent, we sing songs” Epic Proportions
Pop Culture Guilty Pleasure: The Simpsons
Cocktail: Dirty Vodka Martini

Week in Review, April 16 – 22, 2012

LPTW’s Blog30 was created to highlight the diversity, passion and brilliance of the individual members of the League of Professional Theatre Women in celebration of the organization’s 30th Anniversary. Every Sunday, the women featured in the previous six days, as well as three others from our first two months, receive a little more attention, a second chance for readers to learn about them. Sunday is often a day for reflection, offering the opportunity to catch up on the previous week’s activities. Now, the Week in Review gives our readers the opportunity to experience a week’s entries in one easy sitting. We hope you enjoy the latest addition to Blog30.
