This presentation explores the difference in lighting techniques used for stage and TV.

I hear a rumour that the show has had to move back into the older, smaller hall in the Armouries due to licensing problems with the new space. Is that right? What a bummer! It would really have benefited from the extra space. Ah well, it'll be a bit cosier and more intimate! :)
