2016Sherry Coenen’s lighting adds to the magical impression.
Anne at the Theatre

2016Using a glaring strip-light approach throughout, perfectly designed by Sherry Coenen
Maryam Philpott

2016Sherry Coenen lights the action well, and the sense of dubious exoticism created by the lighting effects is rather ingenious
Stephan Collins
britishtheatre.com
2016Sherry Coenen’s shadowy lighting sometimes drenched in direct red light, certainly helps to build the mystery and excitement.
Ron Simpson

2016I immediately feel the heat, as I notice the stage is lit up as if the sun is shining.
Gemma Hirst

2016The show is nicely lit by Sherry Coenen, especially in the brief slo-mo cuddle- huddles

2016From Sherry Coenen’s lighting design and the great use of light in telling ‘Ted’s’ story

2015Sherry Coenen’s lighting also does well to augment moments...creating different colours and tones for when certain personalities are being explored.
JWaygood

2015Her piece is built up in a very controlled manner, and her use of lights that slowly form the walls of a room around her and the sound design of whispering voices help her to build an incredibly raw tension
Franciska Éry

2015Benjamin’s 2006 opera offers a swarm of pizzicato strings, ruminative flute and angular brass suspended over the dank blink of a cimbalom. Here Sherry Coenen’s lighting designs are at their most expressive

    Professional Recommendations

    Piotr Malek Costume Designer

    I worked with Sherry in the past. Professional and fruitful.

    Chris Hislop Director

    Sherry designed the lighting for my recent production of The Shakespeare Conspiracy, and her work was to an extremely high standard - she worked effectively with a limited rig, offering a full, detailed and beautiful lighting design. A very talented designer, as well as exceptionally practically able, Sherry was a joy to work with and a true professional - highly recommended!
