George Xenos is a production manager, set & costumer designer.
Off-broadway he’s worked at the Yiddish Theatre, York Theatre Company, Perry Street Theatre, New York Theatre Workshop, SoHo Playhouse, 47th Street Theatre, Primary Stages, and at the Judith Anderson Theatre. As of late-2019 he was continuing to work off Broadway.[From a 1999 article] Check out the resume of set designer George Xenos and you’ll find a pretty diverse lineup of projects. It’s a typical mix of theatre, plus other disciplines: In the last two seasons, for example, he’s designed such productions as the Off Broadway sleeper Killer Joe; Danny Hoch’s Jails, Hospitals, and Hip Hop; and the well-reviewed Men on the Verge of an His-panic Breakdown. He’s also the resident designer at the very hip Naked Angels Theatre Company. Just for variety, he serves as designer for the annual Halloween horrorfest Madison Scare Garden and, this past December, he designed scenery for the live holiday show Kenny Rogers–Christmas From the Heart. He works in other media, too, including a couple of low-budget films and the Bravo TV chatfest Inside the Actors Studio.
What’s not so typical is Xenos’ work designing for print–fashion layouts and advertisements for such magazines as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, and Out. These projects range from serving as a kind of stylist for fashion shoots to building large-scale sets to fulfill the elaborate fantasies of editors and photographers.
