Peter John Still has been creating his weirdly creative, layered soundscapes as resident sound designer for the Idaho Shakespeare Festival and Boise Contemporary Theater for more than 20 years.
He also “moonlights” occasionally on Broadway, working with former ISF regular director Bartlett Sher.
Still work on the Sher-directed production of “Golden Boy.” The Clifford Odets’ play is about a talented violinist who forsakes his musical career — and his family’s wishes — to pursue his fame and fortune in the prize-fighting ring. Still shares his nomination with Marc Salzberg.
This marks Sher’s fourth Tony nomination. He was for Best Direction of Musical for “South Pacific.” The production also is nominated for Best Revival of a Play, Best Featured Actor for Tony Shalhoub and Danny Burstein, and best scenic, costume and lighting design.
