The Broadway Lighting Master Classes (BLMC) and the Broadway Sound Master Classes (BSMC) will be held May 22-26, 2006 at NYU's Jack H. Skirball Center for the Performing Arts in New York City. Produced by Live Design magazine in conjunction with the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University, the 12th annual BLMC and fourth annual BSMC represent in-depth professional training in lighting and sound, with sessions by the top designers in their respective fields.

Tony Award-winning lighting designer Jules Fisher will once again serve as creative consultant and head of the faculty for the BLMC, which take place on May 22-24. The BSMC will take place on May 25-26, with legendary sound designer Abe Jacob at the head of a faculty of top sound professionals.

All participants at the BLMC and BSMC will attend a Broadway musical followed by an in-depth critique of the lighting and sound, respectively. Innovations this year include a new technology breakfast with brief presentations of new products and networking luncheons that will allow attendees and corporate sponsors the opportunity to meet in an informal setting. The Projection Master Classes that were launched in New York City last year will be held in conjunction with LDI2006 in Las Vegas in October 2006.

The Jack H. Skirball Center for the Performing Arts (566 La Guardia Place at Washington Square South on the campus of New York University) is part of the Helen and Martin Kimmel University Center, which opened in 2003.
