When a new stage version of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers hit the UK, the Philips Showline high-output SL PAR 150 ZOOM was brought in to match the production’s vivacious energy.

Director Patti Columbo wanted to inject the classic musical with a youthful exuberance and vibrant colors. The visual impact was profound –  a newspaper described the production as “as colorful as its Technicolor movie original.”

Lighting designer, Nick Richings, has 25 years experience working in theater lighting in the West End and Broadway. He used the SL PAR 150 ZOOM to wash the stage in bright, dynamic colors. “I’m really impressed with the light output of the SL PAR 150 ZOOM luminaires. The lens is great, they go nice and narrow, and they offer really good color mixing. The warm and cool whites are also surprisingly good.” 

“We only had a one-day get in for each of the venues on the tour, so I needed something that could be focused easily, and would be reliable and rugged. The SL PAR 150 ZOOM luminaires performed great in all those aspects.”
