Darren, part of the A/V crew, is working on adjusting the stage management console’s headset system. He is testing out the headset in this photo. The headset system is very important during the show, since it allows stage managers to communicate with others backstage. The console also displays footage from a camera trained on the stage, and another camera trained on the conductor. Part of the A/V crew’s job is to set up all these systems and more before the season opens and then maintain them throughout.
