A graphic designer for nearly 20 years, Robbie Rozelle is so lucky to have been able to combine his two great passions, theatre and design.
Born and raised in and around Binghamton, NY, Robbie fell in love with musical theatre in high school. Around that same time he became the art director for "Cat Tales," his high school newspaper. In 1995, Robbie created the Carrie The Musical website, using Geocities and has never looked back. After being featured in Entertainment Weekly about the site, Robbie founded Ghostlight Design, the "go-to" web and print design company for many of Broadway and cabaret's top performers. He has designed for such luminaries as Laura Benanti, Marin Mazzie, Melissa Errico, Liz Callaway, Kelli O'Hara, Malcolm Gets, Scott Alan, Jonathan Reid Gealt, Charlotte Rae, in addition to numerous cast albums with PS Classics, Broadway Records and the Grammy Award® winning Sh-K-Boom/Ghostlight Records, among others. His work has been seen in such publications as The New York Times, Playbill, Instinct Magazine, Next Magazine, HX Magazine, Cabaret Scenes, The Sondheim Review and over Times Square. For three years, Robbie served as the graphic designer and creative director for Playbill, culminating in the design he is most proud of, the branding of #PlaybillPride, a 30-day initiative of the LGBT movement in the theatre that included a redesign of their historic logo for the month of June 2014. Playbill Pride returned for a second year in 2015, where Robbie art directed the magazine. Playbill Pride returned again in 2016, again with Robbie's work. He currently serves as the in-house designer for Grammy-winning record label Broadway Records.
A sometimes performer, Robbie is the recipient of the NEPTA award for Best Supporting Actor in a Musical for his tongue-twisting turn as Trevor Grayden in Thoroughly Modern Millie. He has also directed and co-written sold-out cabaret shows for Tony Award nominee Melissa Errico, Tony nominee Kate Baldwin, Grammy nominee Alexandra Silber, Elena Shaddow, Steven Ferezy, Jonathan Demar, RuPaul's Drag Race season 7 contestant Mrs. Kasha Davis and frequent collaborator Jessica Vosk. He co-produced the album Cynthia Erivo and Oliver Tompsett Sing Scott Alan [Deluxe Edition], executive produced Astoria Boulevard's debut album and was an associate producer of Jonathan Reid Gealt's "Whatever I Want It To Be". Robbie is a Grammy voting member. When not designing, he can usually be found tweeting jokes and random musings at @divarobbie.
Robbie resides in Astoria, NY.
