  • Great show! Pretty much everyone was on their game
  • Talent arrived too early--8pm. Previous show that evening (The Theatre Factory) was 45min late (!) so we didn't roll tape until just past 10pm. This made for an antsy environment in the lobby as talent waited a long time to go on. Plan to roll tape at 45min before the end of the taping slot for a 1/2 hour show; and 1:15 before the end of the taping slot for a 1 hour show.
  • We were overly conservative on the timing, had to stretch everyone in the functionary roles. We should just end the show early rather than strive for 58:30 TRT, because the stretching got a bit labored.
  • Because of the large number of speakers, we had to area mic the stage. This was done with 3 mics: an electrovoice on the lectern, plus 2 shotguns (both Marshall shotguns, to match tone) mounted on roller boom stands at either side of audience area. Shotguns were angled rather than hung on light grid because the last time we hung a shotgun there was an annoying echo. Angling the mics toward the stage sounds much better than the time we hung a shotgun pointed straight down (at the hard polished floor). But the audio still sounded really thin. Nothing beats a worn lavalier mic.
