It’s time for another Hashtag! This series highlights a trending company/industry each month and explores how technology is involved in every aspect of the business. This month we’re focusing on show biz because not only do we like to be dramatic and sparkly from time to time (fine, always), but we also want to explore how technology is involved in bringing a story to life on stage.
We’ll be going to Broadway (jazz hands, please) to watch ECLIPSED, the story of five extraordinary women brought together by upheaval in their homeland of Liberia, and will chat with a panel of Broadway experts about the way technology affects production. From lighting to sound to costume design, tech has a role in all facets and we’re going to investigate how.
Agenda (please make sure that this timing is OK with your parents…we know it’s late!):
-ECLIPSED Show: 8:00pm-10:30pm
-Panel Discussion: 10:30pm-11:00pm
PLEASE NOTE: This show is complimentary (free) for you and we only have a certain number of tickets, so please ensure that you will be able to attend the event if you’re registering. Also, this show contains sensitive subject matter, so we recommend you comb through the site (http://www.eclipsedbroadway.com/) to see if you/your parents have any concerns .
About ECLIPSED: Amid the chaos of the Liberian Civil War, the captive wives of a rebel officer band together to form a fragile community—until the balance of their lives is upset by the arrival of a new girl. Drawing on reserves of wit and compassion, Eclipsed reveals distinct women who must discover their own means of survival in this deeply felt portrait of women finding and testing their own strength in a hostile world of horrors not of their own making.
See you there!
