A wisecracking sound designer once said, “The audience doesn’t leave humming the lights.” Whoever said it, they have a point. That’s why this week’s episode dedicated to the rock musical THE WHO’S TOMMY features a guest with one of the most important jobs in musical theatre! But Cricket Myers is no ordinary sound designer. She was also the first woman to ever be Tony nominated for “Best Sound Design of a Play.”
Together, Cricket and Jeff begin our official Tony Award festivities by discussing her career, how sound technology might be behind an important evolution in musicals, and how this rock opera carries incredibly profound themes within its iconic guitar riffs.
