Broadway will celebrate its reopening in September with the 74th Tony Awards in New York, with two nominees for Best Musical, Jagged Little Pill and Moulin Rouge! The Musical, both powered by Meyer Sound systems.
The veteran sound designers for the two productions, Jonathan Deans and Peter Hylenski respectively, are both nominated for Best Sound Design for a Musical. The two shows also received the highest total of Tony nominations, with 15 for Jagged Little Pill and 14 for Moulin Rouge! The Musical.
Productions scheduled to return that principally rely on Meyer Sound, with respective sound designers, are David Byrne’s refreshed and relocated American Utopia (Pete Keppler), Dear Evan Hansen (Nevin Steinberg), Hadestown (Jessica Paz and Nevin Steinberg, pictured above), Ain’t Too Proud (Steve Canyon Kennedy and Walter Trarbach), and West Side Story (Tom Gibbons).
Finally, the mega-hit Wicked is back for its 18th year, with the original sound design by Tony Meola updated for the new season by his associate, Zach Williamson, in consultation with Meyer Sound Director of System Optimisation Bob McCarthy.
