I’ve been busy this week getting Broadway Across America’s Wicked up and running for a 3 week Austin tour. Those of you who have played it know the challenges at hand. So significant, in fact, that the Percussive Arts Society Rhythm! Discover Center museum has dedicated a portion of an exhibit with pictures and set up maps.

In other ways of using technology to learn from each other there is an informative Facebook group page entitled Wicked Percussionists. And, of course, two episodes of Percussion Axiom TV dedicated to issues involved of my original run of the show in 2009.

What resources can you recommend to readers that can help someone else prepare for a gig? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
