He had designed the settings and costumes for 99
productions before Robert Randolph was called upon to
do his first Broadway show--Gian-Carlo Menotti's "The
Saint of Bleecker Street." And "The Desperate Hours"
marks the beginning of his second hundred creations. A
graduate of Iowa State University, for three years he
taught architectural design at his alma mater before he
gathered courage enough to face New York. Seven years
ago, Mr. Randolph began working in summer stock--his
own for the first two years and later in Lakewood, Maine;
the arena theatre in Atlantic City and in a straw hat
venture in Salt Creek, Chicago. HIs Broadway training was
as assistant designer for last season's "Traveling Lady"
and this year's "The Honeys."
