“The Country House” was Lange’s first Broadway play with Blythe Danner.

Says Lange: “I display memorabilia, books, pictures and mementos from parts I’ve played because when I get stuck or daunted about how I’m getting from A to Z with a character, I like having this full wall of examples of, ‘Look, you’ve done it before, it will come again.’ These things all reinforce that the process has worked in the past.”

“I’m a very creative person by nature. I act, draw, paint, play the piano, sing and like design, so I wanted a space where I can just shut the door and all these creative endeavors can be fulfilled,” Lange says.

The bookshelf was designed with a giant space in the middle because having shelves all the way across felt too heavy for the room, Lange says. He didn’t want to give that spot to anything, so he made this sign symbolizing that he’s always looking for the next challenge.
