recently designed projections for a new musical called Nerds: A Musical Software Satire for the Philadelphia Theatre Company. The show is a lighthearted satirical retelling of the history of the personal computer starring mildly truthful, but mostly fictional, characterizations of Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Paul Allen, Steve Wozniak, etc. The show featured a 20'×10' rear-projection screen fed by a two-projector Watchout setup. The RP played several roles within the show. Most of the time, it was an animated backdrop, but occasionally, it became a character in the show.
