Fun Fact: The turntable and live music flowed together to make a music box effect, breath-taking to see. This story about Ada Lovelace, is probably my favorite show I've ever designed. The first time I read the piece I was blown away and really moved by the story of Ada. The creative team worked really closely together to bring all of the elements into harmony, especially for the ending music sequence.  I adored working with the turntable on this piece, especially with all the gobos. Favorite element would have to be the the disco ball I used to create the crystal palace effect at the end of the show. This show definitely has my heart.
