Smith Center in Las Vegas Upgrades Audio System

Stage Directions

Las Vegas is a city of innumerable venues, yet the 2,050-seat Reynolds Hall in Las Vegas’ Smith Center for the Performing Arts stands out as a showcase for entertainment and culture. In addition to hosting the Las Vegas Symphony, the Nevada Ballet Theatre, and other regional fine arts ensembles, Reynolds Hall is also the city’s leading roadhouse for touring Broadway productions and a preferred site for prestigious pop, rock, and jazz concerts. To serve up this varied fare with impeccable sonic quality, the hall’s main reinforcement system was recently upgraded with new Meyer Sound LEO® Family components, including LEOPARD™ line array loudspeakers and 900-LFC low frequency control elements.

Lighting 'Puffs' Off-Broadway

Stage Directions

Puffs, or Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic, is an off-Broadway show playing at New World Stages beneath an all-LED Elation lighting rig. The play portrays a certain famous wizard school from the perspective of the slightly nerdy and not-so-famous house called Puffs. Described as ‘a play for anyone who has never been destined to save the world,’ Puffs are the outsiders of the magic school who disheartenedly observe as a certain boy wizard repeatedly saves the day. Written by Matt Cox and produced by Tilted Windmills Theatricals, the play has a lighting design by Herrick Goldman and was directed by Kristin McCarthy Parker.

Theatre Projects Announces New Office in Denver

Stage Directions

Theatre Projects announces that on June 1 they’re opening a second U.S. office in Denver. Wanting to be more easily available to their clients in the western and mid-western U.S., they looked at locations from Seattle to Austin. And they loved the central-ness of Denver. It’s only a few hours by plane to Los Angeles, Portland, Minneapolis, Dallas, Chicago, and Atlanta. It’s also one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S. and ranked among the best places to live in the country.
