Lighting hits the stage from all conceivable angles Every nook. and cranny seems to be stuffed with ETC Source Fours and or.

Richard George and Suzie Hills sound, embellishing the original design The Victoria Apollo has a very. dramatic height but a narrower and shallower stage This made it. necessary for us to redesign and replot many of the scenes I have. been absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity to revisit my Wicked. lighting design its been great fun, Crew and set photos Posner and his associate LDs Karen Spahn US Michael Odam.

Winches and tracking actually have two separate PA systems on Wicked one delivering. the band and orchestra and the other delivering the vocals. Wicked is heavily reliant on atmospherics and smoke both for time. and place and for effects Smoke dramatically comes up through The set up is a classic Autograph arrangement George elaborates. vents and holes scattered across the stage floor In the basement We are using Meyer M2Ds in the pros for the band delivery and. a series of twisted tubes and ducting run across the underside of a central cluster of Meyer M1Ds to deliver the vocals Delays are. the floor Smoke and low fog is zoned and distributed to the various a combination of Meyer UPJs and UPMs and we have a surround. vents via this spaghetti like network HELL designed and built the system of Meyer MM4s and UPJs Foldback is Meyer MM4s and. system using its standard DMXbabels configured as fan speed UPJs There is little processing just some Meyer CP10s for. controllers for all the smoke zones Eaton explains The parametrics a couple of Lexicon 960L reverb units and some Meyer.

For George and assistant Suzie Hills this is their first time in this. venue A former cinema the Apollo has its own idiosyncrasies The. room does have its challenges but so far it s been a pretty smooth. run The biggest challenge on Wicked is the fact that it s a relatively. long show and we are continuously busy In terms of set up. however the designers knew exactly what they wanted and how it. should sound so it was pretty sweet, The rig is entirely analogue apart from the XTA digital crossovers.
which are used as delay and EQ units the Meyer system has its. own crossovers Also the drums and percussion come in on a little. Yamaha 1000 submix this then feeds into the main Cadac J Type. FOH console which features motorised faders The signal remains. analogue after that, Backstage a Yamaha 2000 runs the monitor mix from active splits. so that pit monitoring remains completely separate The band. members each have their own Aviom personal mixers allowing. them to control their own foldback Amps are four channel. Lab gruppen 2400Qs, All performance mics are omni directional and there is no foldback. for performers to avoid potential feedback issues Things are further. complicated by the fact that the cast sometimes perform downstage. of the PA which can be tricky George say The most important. thing for us is to keep the artists balanced and stop them from. feeding back Tony and Kai used the Meyer SIM system to set up. the PA and touch wood so far we ve not had any problems More. importantly even though the cast only hears what comes back from. the house they seem very happy with the set up, Meola is very particular about microphones All the cast are on the. new Sennheiser 5212 bodypacks and Countryman B6 mics George. explains The B6s are incredibly small about a quarter of the size. of the MK2s You can therefore pull them down that bit further and. they are much easier to hide They also sound excellent. He continues This is a huge show with a big chorus It s also. a busy show backstage Costume changes for both main. characters and supports seem to be almost constant and the main. characters are at least double mic d and in the case of Elphaba. triple mic d with one in her witch s hat, Wicked is a technically elaborate and exciting show There is a feast. of detail that is tough to digest all at once What makes it wickedly. thrilling is that it is a constantly changing environment packed full of. surprises and wondrous theatrical artistry The designers have taken. all those classic theatre tricks and techniques then realised them. using state of the art technology and invention Live theatre. entertainment has moved into a new very sophisticated dimension. and it s electrifying Just five years ago a theatre show like this. would have been inconceivable it s both difficult and intriguing to. imagine what the future might hold,Lighting Sound December 2006 65.
