Working in the Theatre: Orchestrations

If the score of a musical is the soul of the show, the orchestrations are the heart, swelling and circulating emotion throughout your body so you can feel every note, understand every lyric. Orchestrations create the sound of the show and for that we are thankful. Watch as two of the most prominent orchestrators Larry Blank (Holiday Inn, Mary Poppins Returns) and Alex Lacamoire (Hamilton, Dear Evan Hansen) share their storied careers and their recent work on Broadway and beyond.

American Theatre Wing’s Working in the Theatre documentary series features the most fascinating people on the stage, behind the scenes, and in the audience. From Tony Awards® and Obie Awards® winning artists to the next generation of theatre makers, we capture theatre’s inner-workings, industry luminaries, and unique stories that surround important work.
