Quick and dirty backstage monitors
« on: Nov 04, 2006, 07:53 pm »
I worked as Prod Mgr on a show this summer that was very low budget and outdoors.  The actors had difficulty hearing what was happening on stage in order to make their entrances on time because of the natural noises outdoors and the distance from the "wings" to the stage.  However, getting a monitor system for the show would have been both time consuming and costly.  Instead, the suggestion was made to use a baby monitor.  Brilliant!  Easily hidden on the set, inexpensive, and easily struck each night in case of inclement weather.
