Posting a shot of a recent theatre setup. I was able to cover quite a few instruments in a very small space: glock, xylo, timp, chimes, grand casa, concert bass, bunch of other stuff. Anyone else doing this?
Around here they’re doing all musical theater either with tracks, or mostly tracks plus a keyboard player. Which is fine with me. A lot of the newer musicals have ridiculously hard mallet parts and timpani pitch changes. And huge instrument lists. And the pay is either zero or barely covers gas money.
