Musicals… whether a tried and true version of Grease, the intensity of Evita, or the visual spectacle of Chicago, we at Randolph Designs have a solution for you.
Musical theater can be one of the most challenging, but rewarding, adventures in live performance. From the time the curtain opens to the final encore, musicals contain an enormous amount of technical wizardry. Musical theater necessitates an absolute attention to detail; not only in process of operation, but within the marriage of multiple departments, operating as one, to form the magical experience that we all expect.
We at Randolph Designs can help you put all of the pieces together. A musical needs to be constructed, moment to moment, on the basis of achieving the storytelling goals defined by the “book”. The lighting design that overlays a musical should enhance as well as support the performance. We take the musical and break it down into its basic elements of place and time. Then, in conjunction with the set designer and the director, develop a “storyboard” of appropriate looks for the show. This could include basic stage washes for establishing scenes, side lighting for any dance numbers, or internal scenic element lighting to give the finales that Broadway POP!!
What we pride ourselves’ in most of all however, is the ability to seamlessly work in tandem with the other departments. The Director has a vision; the set designer creates the environment. We bring that vision alive, inside the environment, with a dynamic yet appropriate lighting design. We will work tirelessly with your creative team to ensure that not only does your musical theater production come to fruition, but that it also lives and breathes within the performance space. So why not give Randolph Designs a call today and let’s bring your next musical to life!
