Opening Night on Broadway


There are around 850 light cues during the show. Lighting is operated from a small booth at the rear of the auditorium. The Broadway production at the Richard Rodgers Theatre has a tiny amount of space for the operator, so the light board (EOS Ti, in 2021) is mounted vertically above the stage window, with a remote Go button on the desk, along with monitors around the window (see photo below).
