could this have been known as the victoria theatre at some point… http://caprioconnections.com/pictures/statue1.html “Victoria Theatre, 257 S. Ornage Ave. Newark, the home of refined Italian Vaudeville and the best Italian features, every Saturday and Sunday, Week days English and best Photo Plays” stumbled upon this while trying to make sense of an ad on the back wall of the Adams Theatre View link

an excellent female vocalist, was at a sensible and excellent sounding 82 db. It’s worth another try, I like the sound in the balcony the best, and underneath the balcony in the bar areas is the worst.

I’ve worked 90% of the shows since the 3rd and final counting crows show which opened it in late october. The learning process has been painful because the place was rushed open and still operates under a temp C/O. Everything has come about in fits and starts, including getting a house system in place and tweaking it to the room. These style venues are hard because they were built to be boomy so actors could be heard in the balcony. Regardless, much has to due with the touring sound mixer. My Co-worker clocked the gypsy kings at 100 db, a painful absurdity for flamenco guitar dance music! Thankfully Pink Martini, a big band fronted by

In defense of the sound, while the concrete box has been a slow learning process, it has improved consistently. However, every band travels with its own front of house mix engineer, who has artistic control over the EQ and volume. Some bands like to be loud. That volume level is not typical or a representation of venue policy. Also usually controlled by the bands, and painfully in this case, is the lighting. As a spotlight operator, i found the use of strobes heavyhanded and blinding. Here are some pics i took from that night, looks like an atomic explosion…and an artistic decision the house crew would ever make…

Took 3 pics from the stage last weekend…unfortunately it was dark because the “house” wasnt open yet…one decent pic of the auditorium ceiling, the architectural features on sides seem less ornate than in the old pics i’ve seen above…maybe because of all the theatrical lighting ..also threw in some pics of civic center statues with “wicked” in the background
