Excellent capture of the final equity performance. No obstruction, and only a little washout during high contrast scenes; video is a bit shaky here and there, but very watchable overall. Filmed in 16:9 with a mix of wides, mediums, and close-ups. Great clear sound. Includes curtain call.

A- First minute is a mess since the production crew asked me to move over so they could sit right next to me and take notes the entire show. Because of that there's a railing on the far left side of the stage that I shoot around very well and the best that I can. Second preview of the show.

A nice capture of the new London blockbuster. Shot from the stalls in 16:9 widescreen HD, but there are no zooms, so there's a lot of spotlight washout. But it's very close to the stage, so you can't see the character's faces, but you can follow the action really well. B+.

Producer’s archive of final dress rehearsal, tripod shot with zoom -- the picture is steady and beautiful. It’s a bit off-putting to hear a comedy played live to a mostly empty house, but the cast is great! Caveat: There are two minutes missing: one-minute immediately before “Stumble Along” (nothing of consequence is missed) and another immediately after “Love is Always Lovely” (missing the announcement of the Chaperone’s engagement). Don’t know if these are lacking in the original, or only the leaked copy. A

Dan Stevens gave a great performance in his Broadway debut. Don't quite know what to say about Jessica Chastain(from The Help). Interesting and surprisingly funny play with complex characters. Still in previews. Complete show. One scene, which takes place in the night is rather dark. Mostly steady shots with some shakiness between scenes.

A near perfect capture of this fantastic production at South Coast Repertory. The cast is amazing; Erin is perfect as Clara, and she and David have a sweetly innocent chemistry. Patti gives an emotionally powerful performance. The show overall has more humor than the broadway version, which lightens the mood in the midst of serious subject matter.
The show has a few quick dropouts in the first few minutes, but nothing major. There is one head on the very far bottom right, but it’s rarely noticeable. There is no washout. It’s filmed in 16:9 with a mix of wides, mediums, and close-ups. The sound is excellent. Includes curtain call.

Commentary: Nathan Lane is just fantastic in this witty play. The first act is filmed from the side, so there’s a bar in the way sometimes and stage left is blocked, and it is slightly more shaky than usual. Great close-ups though. The second act is much better, steady and unobstructed.

A great capture of this classic musical starring LA’s longest running Phantom, Davis Gaines. After a recent shoulder injury, Davis does the entire show in various colored slings; he pulls it off nicely, despite a little lack of movement. With a massive cast of almost 50, the show has tons of energy. Overall, Gail is the standout; her Marian transitions nicely throughout the show, and her rendition of My White Knight is absolutely incredible.
There are a couple very quick dropouts in the first act, but nothing major. There is no obstruction and no washout. It’s filmed in 16:9 with a mix of wides, mediums, and close-ups. The sound is excellent. Includes curtain call.

Takes about a minute at the start of each act to settle into it, some shakiness between scenes but mostly well-filmed. . Blackout when the house lights were on for voting. Includes curtain call and emotional speeches by Scott Ellis and Rupert Holmes, well these are a little shaky and obstructed, but they are there.

Master's note: I last saw Hugh Panaro's phantom a few years ago, and he has really grown into this role with a very complex portrayal. Trista Moldovan is leaving the production soon and I'm happy to get a recording of her, lovely voice. Complete show, but act 2 starts a minute into masquerade. The title song is iffy just because it is so dark. Slightly shaky between scenes, but a generally steady shots with some nice close ups. A head appears slightly for the full stage shots. Very clear. Very happy with this recording.

Cast: Hugh Panaro (Phantom), Samantha Hill (Christine), Kyle Barisch (Raoul), Michele McConnell (Carlotta), Jim Weitzer (Andre), Tim Jerome (Firmin), Ellen Harvey (Giry), Christian Sebek (Piangi), Kara Klein (Meg Giry)
Commentary: This was filmed after the November cast change, with a new Christine alternate. Small flub where Christine did not quite manage to remove Phantom's hood. Prologue has quite a few blackouts, and another small blackout in act 2 when Madame Giry confesses to Raoul (all due to late seating), but otherwise very clear and unobstructed. Complete show including curtain call and BCEFA speech. I don't know why I film the best (quality wise) in phantom, but this show is well shot - tightly focused and very steady.

Excellent capture of this year's Hollywood Bowl production. Three songs were cut from the production: "Never Say Good Luck on Opening Night", "Where Did We Go Right?", and "Betrayed"; stage is filmed directly, not the screens, so the action is followed well with a mix of wides, mediums, and close-ups. The first minute of the show is missing, and the next few minutes are a bit shaky with scattered blackouts, but after "The King of Broadway" it settles and the majority of the show is captured nicely, filmed in 16:9, and the sound excellent; includes curtain call.

The video is filmed from the raised section of the venue, so the view of the stage is clear and unobstructed. The action is followed very well, using a mix of closeups and wider shots as necessary, making the video great for both those unfamiliar with the show who want to get the big picture and fans interested in different cast members' performances.

In 3 acts, missing the first 3 minutes of the first and last act, and a head in the bottom of some shots but nothing too distracting. Filmed from the orchestra with great close-ups.
