THE LATEST

DOCTOR ZHIVAGO

One of the most beautiful love stories ever written. First, the Nobel Prize-winning novel, then the Academy Award-winning film, now the sweeping saga of romance and revolution coming full force to the stage of the Broadway Theatre. Tony Award-winning director Des McAnuff has assembled a stunning cast and creative team to transform the classic film into a stage spectacular. His Sound Designer from Jersey Boys, Steve Canyon Kennedy chose a Digico D7 Console to master the dynamic music and lyrics through Meyer, d&b, and L'acoustics loudspeakers in the capable hands of A1 Jack Kennedy. The largest video wall on Broadway, assembled for Video Designer Sean Nieuwenhuis and associate Ian Crawford, is 18'h x58'w, with nearly 5.8 million pixels, controlled by eight custom built SAI Watchout V5 servers.

FINDING NEVERLAND

Re-invented from the Leicester Theatre in London for the A.R.T production in Cambridge, MA., producer Harvey Weinstein with Director Diane Paulus plan to take Broadway's Lunt-Fontanne Theatre by veritable storm. Sound Designer Jonathan Deans plans a dynamic musical setting for the spirited young boys placing A1 Steve Henshaw in charge of the Digico D7 Console, Sennheiser wireless microphones. D-Mitri and Galileo digital processors control an array of Meyer and d&b loudspeakers and amplifiers. John Driscoll with extensive Broadway video design credits including Frost/Nixon, Ghost-The Musical, and Chaplin, controls the twelve new Panasonic DLP and Laser projectors with a Full Boar Road Hog Console and six Custom Mac Pro Catalyst Servers.

THE AUDIENCE

Transported across the Pond from London's West End, Helen Mirren starring as Elizabeth II, brings Buckingham Palace and Downing Street to the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre on W. 45th Street. Sound Designer Paul Arditti with a Tony Award, an Olivier Award, and a Drama Desk Award, creates a soundscape absorbing the audience in the weekly intimate and explosive meetings with the Queen and her Prime Ministers. Associate Sound Designer Tony Smolensky sets the task for A1 Bill Lewis to manage Sennheiser 5212 wireless microphones, and Q-Lab playback through a Yamaha DM1000 Digital Console, and Meyer loudspeakers, to the audiences' delight.

FISH IN THE DARK

SAI's Chris Cronin assisted Steppenwolf's Rob Milburn and Michael Bodeen in the Sound Design for the Larry David comedy at the Cort Theatre. Hysteria reigns in the audience but cool, calm and collective describes the atmosphere backstage where A1 Wayne Smith manages to suppress his laughter behind a Yamaha O2R96 console, Figure 53's QLAB software, with a DME64 controller and Meyer Sound PA. Sennheiser SK5212 wireless microphone technology keeps the audience in tears (laughing, that is).

ON THE TOWN

The Bronx is up and the Battery's down! And the Lyric Theatre, re-named after Spider-Man's exit, is hosting the three on-the-prowl sailors visiting New York City in the Betty Comden, Adolph Green, Leonard Bernstein musical revival. With the "original orchestrations" performed by a 28 piece orchestra, Sound Designer Kai Harada literally has his hands full in the 1800 seat theatre and selected a new Stagetec Aurus Audio Console for A1 Patrick Pummill to control the Sennheiser Wireless package, mixed expertly into the array of Meyer and d&b loudspeakers.

THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME

Transferring all of its hype from the West End to the Barrymore Theatre this latest blockbuster arrival is likely to cause a traffic jam on 47th St. Ian Dickinson of London based Autograph Sound selected a Digico DC-9 Audio Console for A1 Beth Berkeley to mix her magic on the stage journey of a lifetime. With Alan Sutton's original music accompanying Finn Ross's video design including a Catalyst V4 Media Server controlling 9 Panasonic PTD-SK12KU projectors, the journey that will change the life of the exceptionally intelligent Christopher, makes it American Premier October 5th.

HONEYMOON IN VEGAS

Switching from the Brooks Atkinson to the New Nederlander Theatre gives the musical 200 additional seats to fill. It also gives Sound Designers Scott Lehrer and Drew Levy a little more work making sure the patrons in those additional seats don't miss a word. Controlling the Digico SD-7 Console and the Timax II 48x48 Sound Hub along with a gaggle of Sennheiser wireless and d&b loudspeakers will keep A1 Kurt Fischer on his toes for hopefully a long run. Video equipment designed and programmed by Ian Crawford includes dual-redundant Q-lab V.3 Media Servers and 143 InfaLED 6mil Black Face Led Panels. Times Square moves to the New Nederlander.

LES MISERABLES

The national tour and Toronto engagement have provided the hype for its triumphant return to Broadway.

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?

MATILDA, THE MUSICAL

Sound Designer Simon Baker with assistant Tony Smolinski have assembled a first class sound system for this heralded arrival in the Shubert Theatre.
