I was actually freaking out while watching this. They use source 4s… AS WEAPONS!!!! From now on, this is the only acceptable use for stage lights.

Overtures

There’s something absolutely magical about the overture. It’s that piece that brings the audience into the world of the show and I love it.

For the performer and the technician both there’s that sense of excitement that the show is about to begin. The overture (and the entr’acte for that matter) are probably my favorite parts of any musical.
