Kevin Hart came home to Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Stadium to film his stand-up comedy movie, Kevin Hart: What Now? This performance put him in the record books as the first comedian to ever sell out an entire stadium by himself. As the tour designers, we needed to transition the arena version of his stand-up into an immersive audience experience for the stadium which would close out the tour. Our team designed and created an elaborate rigging plan to support a perimeter of audience backlights. We also handled all graphic and video content design in addition to serving as lighting and technical coordinators. The stadium broadcast was estimated to have 50,000 people watching. This was a tremendous production and our team was honored to journey thru that process highlighting and accentuating Hart’s humor. The movie was released nationwide in October 2016.
