Abstract:
We will focus first on a brief history of how sound on Broadway began, then on what makes Broadway Sound Design unique in the audio industry. That will include what is required of a sound designer on Broadway, working with the producer, director, other designers, and what paperwork is needed in order to bid, build, and install the show. A Broadway theater is a four-wall rental meaning the production is placed in an empty shell. All equipment is brought in and installed for what may be a week or could turn into 15 years. This requires a great deal of planning and forethought because the show evolves and can change drastically from first rehearsal (when the paperwork is already over due) to opening night.
