On October 30th, 2015, KV2 Audio made a historic step into the world of Broadway musical theatre. Having stamped an audible signature on the award winning production KINKY BOOTS in Toronto and London, the ESR215 is now playing on Broadway at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre featuring KV2's signature crystal clear sound.

In Toronto and then in London, there were immediate and universal raves about the clarity, dynamics and appealing naturalness of the KV2 sound from all of the personnel on the production, from the audience and from the producers.

KV2 offers fantastic transparency and full spectral range in a relatively small footprint”, says John Shivers, Sound Designer and 2013 Tony winner for Best Sound Design of a Musical for KINKY BOOTS. “It’s not often that our choice of a speaker gets the attention of the producers of a show but that was what happened with KV2… they asked us if we were going to feature it in London since Toronto was such a great success.”

As David Patridge, Associate Sound Designer and Production Engineer on KINKY BOOTS explains, “We were tapped to design the first production in a brand new theatre in Hamburg Germany last year and thanks to our colleagues from Stage Entertainment we had the opportunity to hear KV2 speakers for the first time. It was a game changer for us and we specified the complete system using KV2. There are very real advantages to point source and KV2, particularly with the ESR215, has created something which brings a high-fidelity sensibility to live sound.”

KINKY BOOTS, which had its Broadway opening April 4th, 2013, won six Tony awards in 2013 including: Best Musical, Best Sound Design of a Musical, Best Original Score (Music and/or Lyrics) Written for the Theatre, Best Orchestrations, Best Choreography and Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical.
