Congratulations to the 2009 Tony winners in Sound Design!

June 11th, 2009 by Christopher  

Big ups to Gregory Clarke and Paul Arditti who won the 2009 Tony awards for sound design! Gregory bagged “Best Sound Design of a Play”, and Paul took home “Best Sound Design of a Musical”.

I am, of course, contractually obligated to mention that both of these designs were powered by QLab. I’m also just flat-out proud that QLab could be useful to them. Both artists were kind enough to say I could mention it on the blog.

The show ran flawlessly on QLab. So thanks to you! And thank you for version 2. It really is a very special tool.

Congratulations to you for QLab 2. It’s a delight to use. I’m perfectly happy to endorse such a well-designed and reliable product. I have now done three shows using QLab 2 and have specified it for the next three.

— Paul

We’ve only had Tony awards for sound design since last year, when QLab user Scott Lehrer won the first-ever award for Best Sound Design of a Musical. So, hey, that’s 75% of Tonys for sound that have been powered by QLab. Cool!
