Designing on a Blog, Part oh-whatever
OK, so designing the musical The People versus Mona.
My third musical in the last 1.5 years. Which is funny, 'cause I don't even try to do sound design work anymore. And the other funny thing is the last musical I did was about the Mona Lisa. More Monas. More the merrier.
In any case, the producer has a friend who has the following gear:

I'm concerned mostly that the band will need some kind of in-ear monitors. But the Furmans are a solution to that, if we can use them.
