In June 2017 Million Dollar Quartet was shipped out to New Zealand. The Rock and Roll musical headed to the 2,400 seat venue, The Civic, where it played to packed houses receiving fantastic reviews.
The UK sound team, consisting of PSE – Andrew Fugle, Head of Sound – Joe Green and Deputy Head of Sound – Nick Newman, flew out working with local sound suppliers Oceania Productions to install the show in the theatre.
“All appreciative credit is due to the production team too: David Howe’s exemplary lighting, David Farley’s cleverly claustrophobic “chicken shed studio” set design, and well-appointed period outfits, and obviously the crucial skills of sound designer Ben Harrison and musical director Phillip Murray Watson. Together with the cast and crew they deliver an altogether satisfying entertainment package.”
“The audience is thrust into the 1950′s as Blue Suede Shoes is bellowed out causing the instant effect of getting those toes a tappin’. The energy of the sound is immediate and I realised that this really was going to be a Rock n’ Roll show with all the instruments and vocals performed live and loud. ”
