WHY SHE'S MS. BROADWAY: With some 18 Broadway credits, plus several off-Broadway, regional, and television credits to her name, one can certainly say Anna Louizos is a versatile set designer.  Whether she's creating an initmate play set (To Be Or Not to Be, Golda's Balcony), a traditional Broadway musical extravaganza (White Christmas, Curtains), or an expansive cityscape (In the Heights, Avenue Q), Louizos has been critically acclaimed.  National audiences have seen her work with the tours of White Christmas, Avenue Q and London audiences saw her Avenue Q as well.  TV audiences have seen her work on Sex and the City and The 46th Annual Tony Awards (1993 Emmy Award nomination).  This season alone, she designed the sets for The Performers, Rodgers + Hammerstein's Cinderella, and The Mystery of Edwin Drood, for which she earned her third Tony Award nomination.  The season has been a good one for Ms. Broadway May 2013.
