A Little Night Music is romantic, funny, fast-paced, and comic. This production was staged with not a lot of physical scenery, relying on a few detailed units that could be placed easily and quickly, Full-stage projections were used like painted drops to create dozens of settings, sometimes changing rapidly within a given song.
For this production, we had three older projectors, each with 1000 to 2000 lumens. A suspended platform was created in the house for them. The fields of all three were “stacked,” or focused on exactly the same area, to boost the effectiveness of the projections. The lighting design for the show relied heavily on side-lighting and specials both to embrace the romantic quality of the show as well as to protect the projected images.
