iHeartRadio Theater

New York, NY

The iHeartRadio Theater (formerly the PC Richard & Son Theater) is a private venue for Clear Channel Radio’s New York City stations. The 5,500 square foot street level performance space hosts top recording artists performing exclusive private concerts for station listeners.

This multi-use space is primarily a rock concert hall, but is also the home base for Clear Channel to capture content, such as their Stripped series, for national distribution. It also functions as a corporate meeting room and screening room. 

The theater is equipped with over 200 dimmers, conventional and moving light fixtures, and over 8,000 LED nodes embedded in the side walls, curved ceiling panels and upstage wall. The LEDs are controlled via a media server that can send color, texture and video images to the entire system, fully enveloping the audience in the excitement of the performance.
