Kyle Anderson, originally from Somonauk, Illinois, has been a lighting designer in Chicago since 2003. He began stage managing for The Second City in 2005, and this is his second revue in the E.T.C. He is grateful to his directors, casts, producers, fellow SMs, and Mom and Dad for his success. But mostly, he is grateful for the blind, uncaring processes of this mechanistic universe, which have shaped him into a very happy person. And for Lauren.
