I don't know of you know the answer to this but I am just curious. How is the actor playing Jesus mic(ed) when he has no shirt on? I could see if he wears a wig and you have the ability to put the pack in the wig.
I can't answer the question about his pack, since it's a trade secret...J/K, actually, it's because we're still in shop build and haven't started tech so I haven't seen him yet. I Don't think he has a wig though. But his primary mic is a wireless handheld., with a lav and body pack as a back up.

I believe you'll be in El Paso, TX at some point on this tour! I'd love to say hi and have some Mexican food if there's time. (I'm not sure if it's a one off or if you stay for a bit.) I usually take any Broadway call that is offered, so there is a good chance you'll have opportunity to abuse me as a local hand, anyway. lol.

The theater here is a pretty cool building with a lot of history. (it was originally an old movie house and still has the original, though upgraded, Mighty Wurlitzer theatre organ. During the annual film festival, the first movie of each day is usually a silent film with organ accompaniment, as it would have been done in 1913. It's a pretty special experience.

Congrats on the new gig!
We're in El Paso at the Plaza Theatre for a two night stop in January. I've played the Plaza already with BMG. Pretty sure it's a union call. We have two evening shows, so I should have a but of time on our second day before the show call. Let me know if you end up on our crew.

Lol! (Good luck!)

I wonder if BMG's traditionally-vehement anti-Union stance has softened any since Cirque's take-over? (I suppose the current tour's Yellow Card would suggest so?)

Yeah, that rate is less than I make as a dept head for the House... the kind where my responsibility involves showing up with a C Wrench and steel toe shoes.

Might need to ring up one of the Vice Presidents of the Stagecraft Dept at the IATSE.

No yellow card without a Pink Contract.  And the 'yellow card' is now a on-line form, no cards to mail out.

Blue Man Group was never really anti-Union until Equity refused to let them join because they weren't considered actors because they don't speak (which was 25 or so years ago). After that they sort of wrote off unions. The current North American Tour is an IA represented tour because it is managed by NETWorks Tours, amd NETWorks has a CBA with the IA. Cirque du Soliel is pretty damn anti-Union. And the currently BMG International Tour is a non-Union tour, managed directly by the Cirque mothership.

Something went down years ago in Toronto with a boycott against BMG, I wasn't close to the situation but it seemed like a big shake up at the time.
