No moving rigging in Tacoma?
#1
Last year, they did one show at the Tacoma Dome (their usual home, Key Arena, is under renovation). None of the overhead trusses moved at all.. though the theatre marquee unit did move. Checking videos of other shows, everything moved, and performers came down on platforms at the beginning. I asked the booth after the show, and they didn't seem to know anything. Does anyone know if, maybe, the Tacoma Dome has some sort of prohibition on this kind of thing, or if it might have been for some other reason? This year, again, it's a single afternoon show at the Tacoma Dome, and I really hope they can use all their effects!

This year's set up will be quite different than last year.  No "spatula" arms or the like over the audience.  My understanding is that even the curtain may be gone, which I wouldn't mind at all - I liked it all of those years without one.
