We were delighted to support the world premier of John & Jen at Southwark Playhouse. Lighting Design for the show was provided by Andrew Exeter. Andrew took full advantage of our stock of Martin MAC Aura XB‘s & ETC ColorSource Spot‘s for his design. In addition, Andrew used Studio COB Plus‘s as well as LED tape to complete the design. The show enjoyed a successful run at the Playhouse from the 28th July through till the 21st August. Filling the Playhouse each night with audiences excited to return to see live theatre once again.
“It was a pleasure to work closely with Andrew again on another project. This time on a new version of this musical. Andrew’s keen eye for design is always gaurunteed to bring new life into any show he works on. Similarly, this show was no exception. Working with a design based on a predominantly Generic & LED rig, it was great to see what Andrew was able to do and it looked great” says Storm’s Rental Manager, James.
