Great resource -- thank you! Such a shame about the smaller and smaller orchestras...

... I thought Company sounded a little under-powered in press clips I've seen. I'm still looking forward to seeing the production when I'm next in NY, but it's s shame to see that it's a 14-piece band. Same thing with Funny Girl.


Even though, as pointed out elsewhere in this thread, the Phantom orchestra is slightly scaled down, I'm somewhat impressed that they're maintaining a large (by today's standards) orchestra. I'm surprised C.M. hasn't tried to slim them down to 10 live musicians + backing tracks. Or maybe he has and ALW has revolted?

Eventually, I fear, a generation of theatre goers will grow up never knowing what the sound of a full, live traditional Broadway pit orchestra sounds like.
