by Stage Directions

We join Meyer Sound in sending big congratulations to Sound Designer Jessica Paz for her Tony Award victory alongside Nevin Steinberg for Best Sound Design in a Broadway Musical for their work on Hadestown. She is the first female to be recognized in this category in the history of the Tony Awards!

Meyer Sound caught up with Paz at Berkeley Repertory Theatre, where she is working on her latest project, Kiss My Aztec, to talk about her work on Hadestown, which also won a prestigious Tony Award for Best Musical. The company is honored that her designs include Meyer Sound — “I’ve always been a big fan of Meyer and the LEOPARD is probably like my favorite speaker of all time. Between that and the UPQ, I don’t know which one l like best," and Meyer Sound is thrilled to congratulate her on this win.

In case you missed it, or want to see it again, here is the video of Nevin Steinberg and Jessica Paz accepting the Tony Award for Best Sound Design of a Musical presented during the Creative Arts Awards portion of the 2019 Tony Awards ceremony for Hadestown.
