Jands VAR-LITE lighting systems have been used on hit Broadway show Mamma Mia. Lighting Designer Howard Harrison and Associate Lighting Designer Richard Pacholski have chosen a lighting rig packed with VARI-LITEs and ETC Source 4 fixtures. The original lighting design ten years ago featured VARI-LITEs but the models have changed to suit the updated technology.

The Australian lighting rig features:

  • 25 VL500s (12 of which are white)
  • 22 VL2500 Spots
  • 20 VL2500 Washes (12 of which are white)
According to Pacholski, the VARI-LITEs on Mamma Mia have reliable, with smooth and accurate operation. The VL2500 Spots have great speed and agility, and move well and quickly, but are still bright enough to hold against the other lights. A total of 69 ETC Source 4 profiles and 8 Source 4 pars are also in the lighting rig.
