42nd Street at Theatre Royal, Drury Lane Choose MDG ATMe Haze Generators

Michael Eddy

With a theater on the site for over 350 years, the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane has a heritage and longevity unrivalled even amongst its neighbors in London’s West End. Its present incarnation, a mere couple of centuries old, boasts a depth of stage that few can offer, making it perfect for lavish musical productions such as the current run of 42nd StreetThis latest production, with Sheena Easton in the starring role, makes the most of the stage area which is packed with props, sets, and a huge cast. It was obvious from the start that a haze generator was required that could easily deal with the enormous stage space, without compromising the performances or the extensive lighting rig supplied by White Light Ltd. MDG’s ATMe haze generator proved ideal for the job.

The Rebirth of the John Anson Ford Amphitheatre

Michael Eddy

A beloved Los Angeles landmark, a treasured venue for community arts groups, and a quintessentially Californian institution, the John Anson Ford Amphitheatre will reopen this month following an extensive renovation by Theatre Projects, Levin & Associates Architects, Mia Lehrer + Associates (landscape architects), and McKay Conant Brook (acoustician). The renovation was so extensive that some are calling it not just a renovation, but a “rebirth.”

Michael Eddy

Located in the geographical heart of Minnesota, Central Lakes College embodies the state’s long-standing tradition of supporting community involvement in the arts. This spirit is very evident in the college’s two theaters, which not only showcase the work of its own drama department, but also host community theatrical productions, as well as recitals, rock concerts and a wide range of other performances.  To support this diversified schedule, the theatre’s lighting designer Ben Kent recently upgraded its rig by adding flexible Chauvet Professional LED fixtures, supplied by Monkey Wrench Productions.
