Mary Zimmerman on the inspiration for the set of Wonderful Life.

The set design was inspired by a graphic illustration by Steven Duncan (owner of The Lake House Studio) so much so that our set designer Todd Rosenthal contacted the artist asking if we had his permission to recreate something similar. When working on a set, we do all types of research and look at many images. There was something special about the lighthearted nature of that illustration and it’s portrayal of the buildings of the New York skycap.
