In addition to classical music and various live performance events, other designs include the Broadway and / or national tours of Fences, Hair and 2008 Tony Award-winning Best Musical In The Heights. Internationally, Acme designed the 2011 Olivier Award Best New Musical winner Legally Blonde, as well as Spamalot, The Drowsy Chaperone & Avenue Q in London, and South Korean and South African productions of Dreamgirls.
Brett Moore has been the resident sound engineer for the Tony Award-Winning Paper Mill Playhouse in Millburn since 2009, where he has helmed the sound board for productions from the current A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum to 1776 to The Importance of Being Earnest. He has worked at Utah Shakespearean Festival, Utah Musical Theater, Riverside Theater in Vero Beach and the Barrington Theater Company.
The Premiere Artists Series is offered in collaboration with Kean University’s College of Visual and Performing Arts and brings world-class theatre professionals to engage students and the campus community in uniquely tailored master classes, lectures, and residency programs. These events provide excellent networking opportunities and often lead to internships, assistantships, and employment in the field. Past visiting artists who have participated in the Premiere Artists Series include Woodie King, Daphne Rubin-Vega, Norbert Leo Butz, Olympia Dukakis, John Lee Beatty, Rick Sordelet, Kim Zimmer and Lee Blessing.
