THEATRE: The Producers
It’s the biggest Broadway hit in years! Mel Brook’s brash, brassy spoof, about a couple of con men who set out to produce the worst musical ever seen, is the toughest ticket in a decade. LD Peter Kaczorowski talks to David Barbour about his close collaboration with director/choreographer/Queen of Broadway Susan Stroman and about the Martin MAC 2000, a key element of his design.

CONCERT: Depeche Mode
Depeche Mode returns to the concert scene with another stunning and creative production. Lighting Designer Paul Normandale uses a combination of Martin and High End gear with a well stocked cabinet of toys, all provided by Upstaging of Chicago. Sharon Stancavage reports on this fun, high-energy visual assault that proves it’s not the amount of gear you have, it’s what you do with it.

OPERA: The Rape of Lucretia
The undisputed hit of the Glimmerglass Opera season is this stark production of Benjamin Britten’s darkly dramatic chamber opera. Controversial LD Heather Carson discusses her design with David Barbour—and why her ideas about lighting sometimes get her into trouble.

CAREERS: Making the Transition: From Theatre to Film
Not many LDs cross over from the stage to film. But Rita Ann Kogler has done it—and she’s here to tell the story. Kogler describes her work on a commercial for the Broadway show Saturday Night Fever, a promotional film for the Japanese company Sanyo, and a new independent film, The Lucky Ones.

The newest software program from Design and Drafting, is a standalone 2D/3D program built on AutoCad® technology. John Busing of the design firm Retinal Trauma, fills you in on the details.

TECHNOLOGY: Updating the Rig at PS 122: A Case Study
P.S. 122 is the premier space for downtown theatre in New York. But the venue’s lighting systems were old and inefficient. Frank DenDanto III tells how he updated the rig—what products he chose, why he chose them, and how they’re working.

EDUCATION: Transatlantic Training
Does training for the lighting profession differ between the UK and the US? And if so in what way does this have an impact on the lighting industries on both sides of the Atlantic? Two recent graduates: one from the UK and one from the US, talk to Jacqueline Molloy about their experiences at college and their foray into the lighting profession.
