The Designs of Carrie Robbins Paperback – March 16, 2011
About the Author
Annie and Barry Cleveland have worked as a team in all aspects of their careers in theatre. Annie advises Barry on scenic matters when the use of fabric is involved and Barry assists Annie with special costume effects when ruby slippers need lights or buffalo are roaming. The two taught together for sixteen years at Colorado State University before relocating to Los Angeles when Barry joined the faculty at California State University Northridge in 2004. Their extensive travels resulted in a jointly written article on the Linneteater in Tallinn, Estonia; shared presentations for the International Visual Literacy Association in Pilansburg, South Africa, and Curitiba, Brazil; participation in a seminar on Computer-Aided Theatrical Design in Seoul, South Korea; and extensive spa research in Bali, Indonesia. Each has been awarded a Fulbright grant to teach in Taiwan, Barry at National Sun Yat-Sen University in 1997 and Annie at National Taiwan University in 2009. Together they received the 2009 Hebert D. Greggs Award for their article in Theatre Design & Technology, "Fort Worth for Entertainment," about Billy Rose's 1936 Casa MaÃÂ±ana theatre in Ft. Worth, Texas. Their most recent joint writing project was "Lighting by Feder," published in USITT's Late and Great: American Designers 1960-2010. Their greatest collaboration, however, remains the raising of their three exceptional children: Simon, Julie, and Vincent.

This publication contains glorious photos of Carrie's drawings and sketches of costumes and scenes, and discusses her history in the industry. More than that, I learned much about Carrie herself and how she began drawing - incredible story! - also, how she lives today and many of her personal insights. This magnificent book, "The Designs of Carrie Robbins," is one that I will keep forever. I am so pleased to know more about someone I could only, till now, call an online friend, albeit it a special one.
I highly recommend this book to other costume designers for its pictorial history, and to any others in the career field, as well as artists of all kinds interested in various aspects of Broadway and theater. It's an incredible narrative and pictorial history.
