TAIT built the square stage configuration for Barbra Streisand's Back To Brooklyn Tour
“It was an honor to work with Barbra Streisand and her team again, as they are such an incredibly talented group of individuals," says Adam Davis of Tait. With David George, designer, and Mike Weiss, production manager, at the helm, the show was destined for success. We were also thrilled with the opportunity to work on three back-to-back powerhouse shows at the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York; first with Jay-Z in September, followed by the Barbara Streisand show, and then The Rolling Stones."
Davis adds: "From a build standpoint, this show was quite different than anything that we’ve done for Barbra Streisand in the past, as we fully-integrated our patented MagDeck system into the show. It was fascinating to evaluate all the logistical gains of doing so, as this show packs much more efficiently, is quicker to put together and is easier to execute, as compared to the previous system of frames and X-braces. With the design based around incorporating the orchestra pit, it’s always complicated when you have to fit nearly 60 musicians and their instruments into a defined area. Our MagDeck system made it simple to give everyone their allotted space within the rolling structure. We’re continuously looking for ways to make improvements, as we strive to provide our clients with the best quality of product.“
