“Well, all good things come to an end... or in this case we moved Off-Broadway!

Setting up in the new theater at New World Stages was almost like taking the show back to the New York Theater Workshop, where it all began. The theater is much smaller (499 seats), and my setup was again built on a platform and suspended from the ceiling of the theater by steel cables.

I had full view of the stage for all the tricks I needed to do with the actors, and it was much more intimate for the actors. Needless to say I had to condense everything into a much smaller space, accessible only by a vertical ladder. There was hardly any room to move and I did a lot of playing from a seated position. The pianist, Greg Anthony Rassen, was on a similar platform, directly across the theater from me.

Almost all of my ‘toys’ were within arm’s reach, and several of the larger instruments like the bass drum and 8 foot long thunder sheet (lower center of photo) were tied to the light grid and suspended above my head.”

Greg Landes’ setup for the Pit Stop Players’ concert at Symphony Space in New York City.
"After a week or two of rehearsals there is usually a performance or two of the show for an invited audience. Sometimes these performances can be intense if there are important people in the room, or if certain sections of the show feel under prepared. This is why it’s so important to know the score and script very well."

"The unique part of Groundhog Day was that the drummer had to play on stage, in a groundhog costume, wearing a giant groundhog head. Since I could barely see out of the head, it was impossible to read a chart (and there wasn’t a music stand), so it had to be memorized."

"If you are passionate, driven, feel you have a calling, a burning desire to play, practice, perform, and record music that you can share with the world, then choosing to be a professional musician here will make you a fulfilled and happy person. You’ll meet the most amazing people on stage, in the rehearsal room and in the audience."
