Okay, I am seriously in a panic though.
If there’s anyone out there who does sound who has done the show West Side Story, can you help me? I have never seen or done the show and this is the first time I’m really doing a bigger broadway-esque show. I have repeatedly asked for information from the head of the department for months but I have gotten nothing, not even a script or cue sheet or anything. And now it’s load-in/tech week and I don’t know what to do. I probably won’t even get the microphones until the day before tech which leaves me little time to get that straightened out (and we’re using 22, possibly more, wireless mics that are cheap and mixed systems) AND deal with an orchestra of which I don’t know the size and layout because of NO information.
Please? Can anyone help? I am desperate and panicking. Hell, I’ll pay for good advice. Please.
