Look Solutions' Unique2.1 hazer made its debut with the Penn State Thespians when the theatrical company recently premiered the musical "Aida" in a four-performance run at the 946-seat Schwab Auditorium on campus.
Founded in 1897, the Penn State Thespians marked their 200th show with the staging of the musical version of the Verdi opera. "Aida" won a 2000 Tony Award for Best Original Score by Sir Elton John; Tim Rice is the lyricist.
"The haze was used for atmospheric effect during select scenes," says lighting designer Andrew Markosky. "I chose the Unique2.1 because of positive reviews I read online and the reputation of Look Solutions. I also liked the ability of the Unique to vary the amount of haze autonomously."
The Unique2 haze machine offers minimal warm up time, minimal noise and minimal fluid consumption. Its new, more efficient fan quickly distributes haze in a room, and its variable output can achieve any desired effect from the finest mist to a thick haze similar to fog.
Markosky reports that the hazer "performed well overall" and delivered on its price-performance promises for the run of the musical.
