You Can't Stop The Beat

I was talking with Peter Monahan and Josh Jacobstein over at the Rose Brand booth (#1039) and they were telling me that the current Hairspray tour probably looks a wee bit different than the Broadway version because assistant lighting designer Philip Rosenberg swapped out the LED units that were the hallmark of the original production with a Main Light Soft-LED curtain. It was done mostly as cost-cutting measure, but Monahan says it still looks pretty cool. I'm hoping we can cover that in more detail in an upcoming issue of Live Design.
