Broadway Musical Storytelling is making a big splash this fall as Bruce Springsteen plants his musical chops on stage at the Walter Kerr Theater. The audience is enjoying an unusual intimate experience in the 950 seat house and "The Boss" delivers a stunning performance usually enjoyed by thousands in the world's arenas. In his musical career spanning more than forty years with the E Street Band, the solo voice with only a guitar, harmonica and piano thrill the audience with timeless hits "Born In The USA" and "The Price You Pay"! Sound Designer Brian Ronan is up for the challenge of making each performance a thrilling "you-are- there" experience with L'Acoustics DV-DOSC Line Arrays and an Avid S3L console under the capable mixing of A1 John Cooper.


Academy Award nominee Uma Thurman is making her Broadway debut as Chloe in the dark drama about politics in Washington, DC. Sound Designer Phillip Peglow works his magic in this New York Premiere at the newly converted Hudson Theater selecting an all d&b rig with Q series line arrays and point source boxes. A1 Mile Wojchick mixes the Sennheiser 5212/3532 wireless microphones smoothly on a Yamaha CL5 console.


Sound Designer Fitz Patton and Associate Sound Designer Shannon Slaton team up to welcome Steve Martin back to Broadway. The Play and the Meteors hurdle through space under the capable direction of Jerry Zacks as A1 Chris Cronin masterfully manages the Meyer conventional PA with Lectrosonics Wireless Microphones through a Yamaha CL1 Mixer in the 780 seat Booth Theater.


After a visit to the Yonkers shop by Chazz Palminteri and his son for a guitar repair, the production crew assembled a first class sound system designed by Gareth Owen with his associate Josh Leibert. A1 Dave Horowitz is in charge of the Avid S6L console, d&b V Line Array system and 36 Sennheiser 5212/3732 wireless microphones to bring the Bronx Tale with music by Alan Menken to life in the Longacre Theatre for directors Jerry Zacks and Robert De Niro.


Some critics claim it's better than the original! No matter. The audiences are lovin' it! "Memories" may still be thrilling audiences for another eighteen years. Mick Potter brings his classic sound design to this dynamic musical at the Neil Simon Theatre only a block away from its original home at the Winter Garden. Commanding Digico SD7 and SD10 audio consoles A1 Maxine Gutierrez mixes the Andrew Lloyd Webber dynamic score and the "Jellicles" purr-fect voices with remarkable harmony through the 40 Sennheiser Wireless microphones and 50 Meyer powered loudspeakers.


In the immediate wake of the 09/11/01 terrorist attacks, incoming aircraft were diverted from the NYC area to other airports, many outside the USA. Those diverted to St. Johns, Newfoundland found their reception by the local residents in the small, isolated town of Gander to be remarkably kind and sensitive inviting the "stranded" passengers into their homes for a "sleep-over." For this heart-warming musical, Sound Designer Gareth Owen chose a new Avid S6L-32 audio console for A1 Chris Leussmann to mix the d&b loudspeaker combination in Ford's Theatre, DC and the Royal Alex, Toronto, scheduled before the Broadway Premier.


Five band locations in the Winter Garden Theatre digitally synced together add a spectacular music dimension to this popular British Rock import. No expense has been spared with this newest Andrew Lloyd Webber production about the musical talents of fifth graders at a prestige prep school. Sound Designer Mick Potter has once again turned the theatre into a magical Rock & Roll Palace. Meyer Articulated Line Arrays and sub-woofers provide plenty of SPL to a grateful audience. <
