This week on One Cell One Light Radio, Dr. Hildy pays tribute to a very special person.
We were saddened to learn this week that our friend,
Charles Berliner, has passed away.
A veteran of set and costume design for film, television and theater, Mr. Berliner spent more than four decades in show business, working on some of the most acclaimed productions of his time, as well as serving for 28 years as the Western Regional Representative of the legendary National Entertainment Industry Union, United Scenic Artists, Local USA 829, IATSE.
Coming from an entertainment family, Mr. Berliner followed his mother, a concert pianist at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco as well as a Broadway singer and his aunt, a vaudeville performer who shared the stage with Gracie Allen into show business, getting his start as a dancer in San Francisco. He became interested in stage design at the tender age of 10, after seeing the original stage production of My Fair Lady with Rex Harrison and Julie Andrews. Careful study of the production led him to figure out how the production used multiple stages to quickly change scenes, and Charles was immediately drawn to the theater. Unlike most, his interests lied not in being on stage, but rather designing them.
He attended the master’s degree program in Theater Design at Brandeis University, graduating in 1971. He is primarily known for his designs created for the stage, including regional theaters the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Milwaukee Repertory Theatre, Missouri Repertory Theatre, The Cleveland Play House, and The Kennedy Center. In addition, Mr. Berliner served as the resident scenery and costume designer for the UCLA Dance Department for ten years; costume designer for the New York based Daniel Lewis Dance Repertory Company, and the Los Angeles based Rudy Perez Dance Theatre.
In addition to his stage work, Mr. Berliner designed the costumes for the film Haunts starring May Britt, Cameron Mitchell and Aldo Ray; Journey Into Mystic Time, directed by Shirley Clark; and for Diana Ross, the fashion montage sequence of Mahogany. Mr. Berliner’s costumes were seen for five seasons on the acclaimed PBS anthology series Visions, including “The Dancing Bear” (with Charles Durning, Tyne Daly and Verna Bloom), “Fans Of The Kosko Show” (with Carol Kane & Eileen Brennan) and the controversial “Ladies In Waiting” written by Patricia Resnick, starring Sally Kirkland, Annette O’Toole and Annie Potts. In addition to his work on the stage and screen, Mr. Berliner was an author of the children’s book I Want Much More Than a Dinosaur, with an introduction by Florence Henderson.
