Broadway debut of Cirque du Soleil.

Some of the elements in the show (including the Rooftop trampoline ‘Hotel’ sequence, and the filmstrip movement sequences) were taken from the previous Cirque show Iris, which ran in the Kodak Theatre, Los Angeles before closing early.


In order to tech and run the show, Masque Sound provided Clear-Com’s HelixNet and FreeSpeak II system. Three HelixNet main stations with 20+ HRM headsets and 10+ beltpacks helped make immediate changes across crew communications during the technical build. The FreeSpeak II system, including 15 wireless users and 10 transceiver antennas, support wireless communication for the crew throughout the theatre house and ancillary areas, such as wardrobe, dressing rooms, and management offices.
