Marc Brickman (born June 15, 1953, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) is a director, producer, lighting designer and production designer. He is an Emmy nominee. His visuals for Pink Floyd[1] are well-known. Paul McCartney 48 Hours,[2] Barcelona and Nagano Olympics Ceremonies, Cirque du Soleil (Viva Elvis), Blue Man Group, Christina Aguilera, David Gilmour, Nine Inch Nails, John Mayer, Pink, Keith Urban, Barbra Streisand, Black Eyed Peas, Roger Waters, Whitney Houston, Slipknot, Bruce Springsteen, Composer Hans Zimmer’s Concert Series and Yusuf Islam are among his show designs.

Arts commissions include a large-scale multimedia and digital installation at the Salzburg Festpiel. Architectural projects include the 2012 re-lighting of the Empire State Building.[3]

Brickman made his Broadway debut in 2007 with Young Frankenstein. His show for which he is co-director and producer, “Once Upon A Dream” starring The Rascals completed a sold out Broadway run.[4] featuring The Rascals.[5]

On July 4, 2015, Billboard reported that Brickman's lighting of the Empire State Building in New York was designed as a tribute to the Grateful Dead’s Fare Thee Well shows at Soldier Field in Chicago and Independence Day, New York’s iconic skyscraper turned red, white and blue, with a “swirl of the color spectrum” to approximate the band’s tied-dyed ethic.[6]
