Composer & Sound Designer
Donald Stark designs sound for theater; composes music for film, stage, TV, and radio; and orchestrates songs for musical theater. Most recently, Donald designed sound for Hudson Theatre Works’ mainstage spring production — One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. Last season, he designed sound — including Foley effects and what one critic called a “weird jukebox” for pole dancers — for the Theatre Row supernatural-infused production of Spirits of Exit Eleven. He also composed original music and designed sound for Garage Theatre Group’s production of Imagining Madoff and Summit Playhouse’s revival of Best Man. Donald also designed sound for HTW’s revival last year of Of Mice and Men and recently completed the score for One State Films’ Passions of Miss Augusta. Previously, Donald designed sound for ten short plays featured in Mile Square Theater’s 7th Inning Stretch, and composed music and designed sound for Italian American Repertory Company’s 2012 revival of Talk Radio. By draconic happenstance (or dracontine affinity) Donald also is currently penning tunes for the musical Dragon Empress of China. http://donaldstark.com
