Shure rocks Broadway in Joplin show19 May 2014
A Shure ULX-D digital wireless system was used on the Broadway hit A Night with Janis Joplin.
The two-hour musical documents the singer’s rise to fame in 1967, with Joplin being played by Mary Bridget Davies and Kacee Clanton.
Broadway audio and video system design specialist Sound Associates was responsible for the design and integration of the system.
Sound Associates’ Carl Casella, says: “Before Joplin hit Broadway, the show toured across the U.S., where I headed up the sound design.”
“Travelling on the road meant we needed gear that could survive the wear and tear of a tour. It also required a system that delivered pristine audio over a clean frequency every time we changed venues. I opted for Shure ULXD4D Dual Channel Digital Wireless Receivers, which allowed me to fit 16 channels into a small amount of spectrum.”
“Whether the cast was singing the unforgettable Piece of My Heart or Summertime, I knew the Shure wireless mics would perform without a hitch,” said Casella. “The [ULX-D] system is flawless. It’s the only wireless gear I used on the show.”
