Interesting ProjectsStage Theater, Merrick, New York (since 2006)
Ongoing consultation, design, and sales for a well-known regional theater. A strong rep plot was established, which is maintained throughout all productions due to constant usage other than the "main stage" show (rentals, children's theater, concerts). We rewired the distribution system to match a new rack of dimmers, installed new lighting positions and fixtures, and created dedicated rep plot and flexible circuits. We installed a new computerized console and continue to design all shows and maintain equipment, expendibles, and communication with the production staff.

Rivoli Theater, South Fallsburg, New York (2010)
Built in 1910 as a vaudeville house; renovated 1937 in Art Deco fashion and used primarily as a movie theater until 1998. Previous lighting designers hung truss and placed boom stands in the house; we provided lighting instruments and a design concept based on limitations of the space and budget. Lighting quality has increased exponentially. Quirks included a ghastly, unexplained drop-out of DMX-512 in certain parts of the theater, especially in the lighting booth (how inconvenient!). A 1910 resistance dimmer system controlling the house lights may be to blame!

Uptown Theater, Washington, Pennsylvania (2003)
We braved the ten-hour drive from New York to work in this art deco treasure deep in coal country. We designed and installed a complete stage lighting system in two phases. The first year, we put in a dimmer rack, electrical distribution to six locations, a lighting booth in the rear of the auditorium, and enough fixtures to stage a modest production or concert. We were called back the following year to install some intelligent fixtures and non-dim relays.
