We say goodbye to the incredible lighting designer, our friend, Howell Binkley. Two time Tony winner for Hamilton and Jersey Boys and a total of 9 nominations. He will be greatly missed.
Last night, we heard the sad news about the passing of lighting designer Howell Binkley.
Howell was one of the most prominent lighting designers on Broadway and in the West End, whose credits included Hamilton, Jersey Boys, Come from Away and Avenue Q to name but a few.
We were fortunate enough to work with Howell on several occasions and knew him as genuinely lovely person with an incredible talent. Our thoughts are with his wife Joyce, his family and his friends during this time.
We have just lost one of the kindest and most generous and extremely talented lighting designers of our time. Howell was a wonderful person and always had an ear to listen to anyone who had the pleasure of being in his company. While we had a distant bond, he always remembered our connection to Winston-Salem. Howell Binkley …while we in the theatre and dance world all miss you and your talent as a great designer and collaborator, may you rest in peace my friend. One last salute to you good sir. Cheers.
Our beloved friend and collaborator Howell Binkley passed away today. He painted with light and took us to places and times we could only dream of going. One of the finest lighting designers in the business, and an even better human being. We will miss him terribly.
I was sad and devastated to hear the news of Howell Binkley and his passing. Howell lit the Broadway revival of Grease in 1994. I was only 24 and had never worked with professional designers, so I knew very little. But there was something so exciting about what he created. It was one of the first shows to use moving lights so if felt like we were doing a rock concert. I knew that he was special. But I also remember his kindness to even an upstart such as myself. And then many years later working with him on The Million Dollar Quartet, both of us older, I truly appreciated and understood his artistry, and would always comment to friends that Howell was probably one of the best designers on Broadway. RIP Howell. You are loved by so many people and you will bear missed.
We are still working on getting more details about the death, as family statement on the death is yet to be released.
