Rich Rosenzweig - Cinderella

Rich’s setup for Cinderella currently on Broadway at the Broadway Theatre.

“My set-up for ‘Cinderella’ is relatively uncomplicated. The music is classic Rodgers and Hammerstein, but with orchestrator Danny Troub's usual fresh, orchestral take on the score. The central position of the LP Granite Blocks and Miller Machine is inspired by the ‘Mary Poppins’ Broadway set-up, and makes for comfortable access. (The small tom is only used for certain colors, not in a normal ‘drum set vein’.)

We're all very lucky in this pit, relying almost exclusively on acoustic sound - very little monitor use. Though there's some plexiglass in front of me, the acoustic bass is immediately to my left, percussion behind me, and we hear each other quite well. All the requisites for nightly musical, enjoyable pit experience.

Rich Rosenzweig and Bill Hayes. Bill was playing percussion for this production of Cinderella.
