ALL THE WAY
Lyndon B. Johnson did not attend a Broadway show during his presidency but he has
made it to the Great White Way in a biographical portrait of his efforts in the Civil
Rights Movement. With the help of Sound Designer/Composer Paul James Prendergast, the
bigger than life Texan has no trouble keeping the attention of the 1300 patrons in the
Neil Simon Theatre. Under the expert guidance of Sound Consultant Peter Fitzgerald,
the Meyer Melodie arrays perform every command from the Yamaha PM5D Digital Console
perfectly. The audience is unaware the existence of wireless microphone technology
for voice reinforcement under the capable mixing of A1 Ed Chapman.
BULLETS OVER BROADWAY
Hoping to add multiple Tony Awards to the seven Academy Award nominations the movie
of the same name received in 1994, the producers of this Woody Allen musical comedy
put together a first rate creative team including Sound Designer Peter Hylenski.
The digital mixing system umbrella of Meyer LCS and D-MITRI coupled to Galileo
processing and a plethora of d&b passive and Meyer powered loudspeakers, give A1
Carin Ford plenty of time to wrestle with the vagaries of the new Quantum 5X wig-worn
wireless microphone transmitters. The St. James has never sounded better.
ROCKY THE MUSICAL
Go figure! A Hollywood boxing extravaganza comes to Broadway. Providing a stunning
video portrait, Video Designer Dan Scully paints a vibrant picture bringing Rocky
Balboa to real life in the real theatre. Using multiple clusters of Samsung LCD
Displays, Panasonic and Christie projectors, and Sony robotic cameras, this
heart-warming story comes to life in the Winter Garden Theatre after an acclaimed
World Premier in Hamburg, Germany.
Storming the walls of the Imperial Theatre, the feverish patrons are clamoring for
tickets to the revised production of Cameron McIntosh's Les Miserables. The national
tour and Toronto engagement have provided the hype for its triumphant return to
Broadway. Sound Associates continues to provide Sound Designer Rick Potter with the
newest and best digital consoles from Digico, the best performing speaker systems
from Meyer Sound and d&b Audiotechnik. The 40+ channels of Sennheiser 5212/3732
wireless microphone systems are expertly mixed by A1 George Huckins. Welcome Back
A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE AND MURDER
When there are 8 various relatives between you and an inheritance, sing about it!
That, and knock them off one by one. In the new musical fresh from the Old Globe
in San Diego, and Hartford Stage, Sound Designer Dan Moses Shrier teams with veteran
Broadway Mixer David Gotwald, for love, murder and hijinks. All that stands between
them and actor Jefferson Mayes is a D&B speaker system, a Studer Vista 5, and
Sennhieser SK-5212s! What will happen next?
