It was a pleasure to return to one our favourite venues in London to supply the equipment for Bob Carlton’s fantastic feel good musical Return to the Forbidden Planet.
After discussing various options with sound designer Nico Menghini, we supplied a full L-Acoustics system consisting of 6x X8 for the main band system, 4x 5XT as a vocal fill system, 4x 5XT for monitoring, and 2x SB18 for low frequency extension.
For control we supplied a Yamaha CL5, a RIO3224-D, RI8 and RO8 stage boxes, 22x radio mics as well a huge 12 Macs!
The entire show was mic’d using DPA microphones, with the cast on a combination of d:fine 4166 headsets and 4061 hairline mics.
The drum kit mics included a 4006A and 2011C on the kick drum, 2011c used for hi-hats and snare, 4099 on the toms and 2x 4090 for overheads.
Wow, what an incredible run full of standing ovations for this cue heavy show! We are so proud to have been suppliers of this show.
“Given a handsome staging by Amy Yardley, lit glamorously by Sam Waddington, and with a pungent sound design courtesy of Nico Menghini (assisted by Josh Robins), the modestly dimensioned stage of the theatre is set for epic events.” British Theatre Review ****
