Today I did about two hours of work loading in and tweaking the sound system at the Living Theater in the Lower East Side here in New York. Somebody at some time at that theater put some money into it because there was a modern amplifier, subwoofer, equalizers, and even a pair of Lexicon reverbs (which the company wasn't using, but it was interesting that they owned them.) And it's all kept pretty well organized. They have plenty o'lights and a decent, if low, grid. The space is big but kind of weirdly shaped.
If you're low on your 18th and 19th-Century porn, you can start with this dude, Édouard-Henri Avril, who illustrated Fanny Hill, among other things.
