New York, NY (February 3, 2014)—Masque Sound recently supported the nine-week Broadway return of Billy Crystral’s Tony Award-winning play, 700 Sundays, providing a custom audio package for the production.
The two-act play, based on Crystral’s experiences growing up, had an audio system designed by Sound Designer Steve Canyon Kennedy and Associate Sound Designer Walter Trarbach.
For 700 Sundays, Masque Sound provided a custom audio package that included an Avid Venue Profile digital mixing console. L-Acoustics dv-Dosc boxes made up the line array elements for the main speaker system and a selection of speakers from Meyer Sound, EAW and d&b were utilized as fill speakers for the rest of the theater. An XTA Electronics DP428/448 Audio Management System and Meyer Sound Galileo 616 Loudspeaker Management System as well as a wireless microphone package from Sennheiser and an intercom system from Clear-Com were also included.
“In addition to the high quality gear provided by Masque Sound, the sound system worked well thanks to the hard work of our team,” says Trarbach. “Production Sound Engineer Andrew Keister and John Cooper, who handled the backstage audio, both did a wonderful job.”
The production was filmed by HBO for broadcast later this year.
