Front Page Flo

In June we traveled to the University of Akron's Daum Theatre to record the "staged reading" of Larry Kass' musical "Front Page Flo." The performance was choreographed by Tony-nominated George Pinney and was under the direction of music director Terry LaBolt. Larry is a long time friend of Audio, and we have recorded and provided audio for the radio broadcast of his "Mighty Wurlitzer Radio Hour" for many years. For this recording NAC Technologies supplied wireless head-worn mics for the cast and the show was multi-tracked using our Dante based recording rig. We mixed the recordings of the 2 performances down at the studio, and sent them for a Blu-Ray release by Larry's Razzmatazz Productions. You can also watch the full performance on YouTube ...
