Celebrate With Great Lighting!

Our extensive experience in lighting design and controls ensures that your next project will always look its best.


After 20 years working in commercial theatre on Broadway and national/international tours, Jeffrey Whitsett founded Opening Night Lighting in 2007 to assist clients through the often challenging process of discovering great lighting in an environment of rapidly changing technologies and increasing energy regulations.

Drawing on extensive experience in theatrical lighting design and architectural lighting control, we use the latest computer design and analysis tools to ensure that every project's lighting needs are fully identified and addressed in an expert and artistic fashion.

Whether large or small, your lighting project is too important to be left to chance. Contact Opening Night Lighting today and discover how easy exceptional lighting can be to achieve.
