Crossing Live 2007 single work musical theatre opera 'The work melds the combined skills of a diva, anchor-woman Paula Day, as hard-edged as her eye line theatre actors who work to music and musicians and stage crew who perform as actors. The live score is played seamlessly with pre-recorded music and a sound-scape as well as pre-recorded and live visuals from cameras wielded by the actors on stage. All this allows the theatre audience to see the television show as viewers at home in their living rooms would see it and, at the same time, experience the unexpected human drama that unfolds behind the scenes.'
