As I may have mentioned, my highschool does not own a stage. Thus, we rent offsite for our musicals. This year we are at the brand new Detroit Shool for the Performing Arts. A truly beautiful theatre with many modern conveniences; they really had a nice budget when they built this. However, their mainstage plot slightly surprised me. It is all Source 4 Lekos (no surprise there), and fresh out of the box Colotran 6 and 8 inch Fresnels. It seemd a bit unusual to me that such a modern theatre would have such a generous amount of fresnels when the whole world seems obsessed with source 4 everything. Of course, the board and distribution are all ETC. Their cyc wash also consists of 12 4 channel Colotran Far Cycs and a groundrow of Altman Zip Strips. I'm not complaining, infact I love Fresnels and am excited to be designing with such a versitile plot (not locked into the RGB of striplight battens), but I can't help but wonder what made the person who spec'd this theatre choose fresnels. Any thoughts?
