David Reiffel (Sound Designer) has created sound, music, and words for theaters in the Boston area and across the United States, including Court Theatre (Chicago), Theatre for a New Audience (NY), Chautauqua Stage Company, LaMama, and five years on the road as composer-in-residence/sound designer with the nationally-acclaimed Cornerstone Theatre Company. This year he wrote original music for the US premiere of Shakespeare in Love at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, where he previously created scores for a 1930s-Hollywood themed Twelfth Night and a Romeo and Juliet set in Alta California in the 1840s. This season has also heard his music for Cymbeline at Shakespeare & Co. and A Midsummer Night's Dream at Actors Shakespeare Project, along with sound designs for Gabriel at Stoneham Theatre, Bridges of Madison County at SpeakEasy Stage, and White Snake Productions' opera Rev. 23.
