Your humble engineer has accepted a full time position at the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis, MN as one of the house Audio Engineers. This blog and I are prepping to head North 500+ miles! An incredible opportunity presented itself and I am jumping at the chance to go be a part of some amazing theater.

The techblr community is full of some great and talented artists. I appreciate everyone who had followed me thus far, I hope you will stick around for new adventures, shows, pictures. I am very excited to get my feet on the ground in Minneapolis and start mixing in these new theater spaces.


What is a Dramaturg?: Carla Steen

Watch as Carla Steen discusses dramaturgy and her process for the Guthrie Theater’s production of “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.”

In the course of one sultry evening, a prominent Southern dynasty is pushed to the brink when tender memories are relived and life altering secrets are revealed. It’s the 65th birthday of wealthy Southern plantation owner Big Daddy and his family has gathered to celebrate, while sparing him the news that he’s dying of cancer. As one son Brick, a hunky former football hero, mysteriously retreats from his desirable but sexually frustrated wife Maggie, his money hungry brother and sister-in-law plot to secure more than their share of the family fortune. Don’t miss this Pulitzer Prize-winning gem, an emotionally intense drama that sizzles with passion and greed like you’ve never experienced before.

The Endless Bridge at the Guthrie Theater is usually the first place I bring out-of-town guests; from there you can see the origin of Minneapolis at St. Anthony Falls and the Mills District. 

The space is mesmerizing; the windows are strategically placed to show gorgeous views of the city, which are often doubled, or quadrupled, in the mirrors that line each window. It’s a simple and beautiful effect, which I think of as architect Jean Nouvel’s funhouse.
