L. W. Miller
LW Miller is the Technical Director for Eastern University’s theatre department. Outside of EU he is a professional lighting designer and theatre artist/playwright that has branched into scenic design, puppetry, sound design, projection design, production management, devised theatre, directing, and acting. The culmination of these studies has been a holistic approach to storytelling that has been a driving force in the creation of new works with collaborators from around the world. His focus on innovative visual storytelling is a unifying factor in every area of theatre he has studied over the past 29 years.
He received an MFA from Sarah Lawrence College, with an emphasis in technical theatre and design in 2017. Though lighting design is his passion, a lifetime of love for the theatre has given him an appreciation for every aspect of life on the stage.
As a Technical Director, LW has worked with Downstage Theatre Company, Stage West Theatre, The Hills Church, and now Eastern University. He most recently used his skills to bring to life Almost Maine at Eastern University; Cost of a Dream with Jermaine Rowe in NYC; and An Act of God for Stage West Theatre. A US Army veteran, he spends most time away from the stage with his son, and when school is not in session they fly home to Texas.
