First NYC play: Andre Gregory's Alice in Wonderland, for which she received an Obie Award. Her many Broadway shows include Hal Prince's productions of Candide and Sweeney Todd, both of which earned her Tony Awards.

Movie credits include John Sayles' Baby It's You, Paul Simon's One-Trick Pony, David Lynch's Industrial Symphony No. 1, and two films starring Al Pacino, The Local Stigmatic and Chinese Coffee. In the fall of 2008, Franne had the honor of being included in “Curtain Call: Celebrating A Century of Women Designing for Live Performance,” an exhibition at the New York Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center. Franne is very happy to have been asked to design the costumes for PBD's production of The Cripple of Inishmaan, and to hang out in South Florida.
