The award-winning Off-Broadway theatre company Atlantic Theater Company in New York City has a new asset backstage – a Tempest 900 Wireless System from Pliant Technologies. Supplied by Dale Pro Audio, Tempest is able to provide the Atlantic Theatre Company with the flexibility to expand its system for the variety of productions that take place in the venue – from straight plays to full blown musicals.
Celebrating 30 years, Atlantic Theater Company has produced more than 150 plays, including Tony Award winning productions of Spring Awakening (Steven Sater and Duncan Sheik) and The Beauty Queen of Leenane (Martin McDonagh). With the theatre’s productions becoming more complex and requiring regular rentals of additional intercom, the production department decided to upgrade its communications system. The Tempest900 was the only system able to provide the coverage the theatre required while offering the flexibility to adapt to the venue’s varying productions.
Former Production Manager for the Atlantic Theatre Company, Mike Wade: “When we tested the Tempest900 wireless system and it worked throughout the building, it was almost a no-brainer. It met our needs in terms of coverage and expandability at a fantastic price-point.”
