Book Description

Entertainment in Production vol 2 takes you behind the scenes at the making of some of the biggest and most challenging shows, theatres and events created around the world between 2000 and 2006, following on from the 1994-1999 period covered by Entertainment in Production vol 1.

It looks at some of the most ambitions applications of entertainment technology - lighting, sound, projection, staging and automation - and talks to the people resonsible for the design and implementation of these projects.

Shows covered include musicals such as Disney's Aida, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Fosse, Hairspray, Mary Poppins and Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Woman In White, Cirque du Soleil's touring show Quidam and Las Vegas spectacular KA, buildings such as the New 42nd Street Studios in New York, Britain's National Theatre and the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas, and exhibitions such as Madame Tussaud's.

Entertainment In Production lets you see how shows are made, and learn the secrets of their work from industry luminaries including scenic designers Bob Crowley, William Dudley, Santo Loquasto, David Rockwell, and Anthony Ward; lighting designers Andrew Bridge, David Hersey, Howard Harrison, Mark Henderson, Natasha Katz, Nigel Levings, Luc Lafortune, Paul Marantz, Anne Militello, Ken Posner, Paul Pyant and Patrick Woodroffe; sound designers ACME Sound Partners, Simon Baker, Andrew Bruce, Greg Clarke, Jonathan Deans, Steve Kennedy, John A Leonard, Nick Lidster and Mick Potter; projection designers including Holger Forterer and many others.

Author Rob Halliday is an experienced guide to the proceedings, having worked on some of the most complex theatre shows of the last fifteen years, including some featured in the book.
