Theatrical lighting that adjusts itself…

…to the mood of the performers and the audience.

Sounds like a bad idea to me. If the show stunk, the mood of the audience would give you a black-out on stage and full lights in the house, the better to illuminate the exits. And as for letting the mood of the performers alter the lighting…that makes no sense at all. I don’t care how Method the actor is, there are times in a long run when he or she is pretty much going through the motions up there. The audience may not know it, because good actors are, well, good actors, but if the prevailing mood on stage after three hundred performances of something that was insipid to begin with is boredom, they’re certainly going to notice the on-stage brown-out.
