Great job, David! I too am a fan of adding tech to a show, or watching a show with good tech. I, like Jason, have felt it has elevated my own stage play to have practiced and done tech for shows. If you get a chance to do it, it's a great way to be a part of the show!

As a tech person, nothing makes me cringe more than ill executed, or non-effective tech work.

I haven't had an easy time enjoying live theatre in more than a decade or so, because I am distracted by the light plot, use/non-use of a fogger, speaker placement, or whatever. It has been a terrible curse, this knowledge.

I applaud this effort.

Appreciate that I'm late to this thread, but I just wanted to say thanks for putting this together.

Good tech is one of the most underrated things in any performative art.

Unfortunately, really good tech is often invisible; unless you pay attention, you have no idea that it just happened.

Technicians deserve respect and gratitude from all performers. If you ever see a green performer disrespecting tech work, you should put them back on the straight and narrow. And whenever you have the luxury of hanging on stage to enjoy your applause, be sure to acknowledge your tech crew.
