The licensed orchestration by MTI is based on the Original 2019 Broadway Production.
This show is orchestrated to be stick conducted from the podium. Both books have extensive keyboard programming and require players with experience with dense programming. KeyboardTEK is proud to offer the original programming as heard in the original Broadway production and the cast album. Through a partnership with the programmer Taylor Williams and his team at Midiomatic, this will be the standard programming that is available for licensing in your production.
Keyboard 1 chair is the primary Piano book and requires a very proficient player and is not for the faint of heart. In addition to various acoustic pianos, other instruments in this book include theramin, strings, marimba, organ, zither, Wurly, and vibes.
Keyboard 2 is also a difficult book to prepare and play.The bulk of this book is the organs, but the synths are very important and often fast moving. This isn’t a symphonic book, but it’ll be a bit of a challenge for a young player. Patches include: zither, synth leads and pads, theramin, celeste, strings, Wurly, harp, sitar, and various pitched and non pitched percussion instruments.

Yamaha CP-300s for both keyboard chairs running MainStage on redundant Mac mini rigs.
