  SFX and ShowBuilder Love Janis
By Eric Stahlhammer

After playing the Actors Theatre of Louisville and the Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park, "Love, Janis" is currently rocking the Hanna Theater in Cleveland's Playhouse Square. In this new rock musical, the life and music of rock-n-roll icon Janis Joplin explodes onto the stage.

Sound Designer Eric Stahlhammer took a few moments from his busy schedule to describe how SFX and ShowBuilder help make Love, Janis one incredible show.

SFX in the Classroom at NCSA
In Summer 2005 the North Carolina School of the Arts hosted a continuing education workshop: Digital Theatre Sound Design. The workshop was well attended and SFX took center stage! The workshop was so successful that we’re doing it again in summer 2006.  More information...

  "I like the software, it did what I expected, and is easy to use.  A good product I'd buy again.  Perfect for having untrained operators run complicated sound playback." -  Darryl Waskow

"I am having a great time as designer having so much keeps putting a smile on my face!  Thanks for a truly great theatre program!" - Trevor Hughes, The Shaw Festival

"We just did a production of Dracula where there were as many sound cues as lighting cues. The only difference was that the sound and music for the show were ready to run long before the lighting, thanks to SFX. It also enabled us to do things that we had been dreaming about. Our TD and Director were amazed by how quickly changes could be made. In short, SFX is a wonder-product and a lifesaver." -  Bryan Bledsoe
