American Conservatory Theater’s Geary Theater
1995 – 1996: San Francisco, CA
Consultant: Theatre Projects Consulting
This is the theater where Phil saw his first play. In 1989 the Loma Prieta Earthquake destroyed the Geary. You can see the wreckage in the picture. Note the sunlight streaming through the grid.
In 1996 we were pleased to be part of the team that restored this important downtown theater to its former glory. BBI installed a fully modern sound, communication and stage manager control system. This system includes 200 microphone lines, 100 speaker lines, full backstage monitoring and paging, main speakers, effects speakers, computerized mixing consoles and an archival video recording system. Below is a picture of the theater fully restored.
