"For this production of Godspell (2012 revised version) simplicity of the setup was key to really highlight the rock feel of the show. Accessibility is always an important factor for me and I made sure everything was in close proximity and easily available.

The music for this production is one of my favorites thus far, it's very accessible and it just rocks! I can really let loose on some of the songs and keep things interesting.

This is my first show using the Miller Machine and I have to admit it's a total game changer. It's just one less thing I have to worry about. It's so easy to get a consistent triangle sound without fumbling around for a beater."
