Madame Tussauds New York
New York, NY
Client: Merlin Entertainments
The multi-level Glow Gala attraction comes to life with state-of-the-art projection technology and a dramatic, lighting extravaganza, choreographed to a hit, New York City-centric soundtrack. Celebrity figures like Lady Gaga, RuPaul, and Priyanka Chopra are synched with the show, wearing custom illuminated outfits inspired by some of their best Met Gala looks.
Katy Perry's figure takes center stage – or rather, center ceiling – in this 360 ̊ experience, suspended from the ceiling and styled in a recreation of her iconic 2019 Met Gala chandelier dress.
A&ES performed a complete renovation of the existing space including overseeing the design development and general contracting scopes. We brought the show to life, writing and directing the creative development of the multimedia show experience and interactive touchpad interface which allows guests to control the show in real time. We contracted and managed the illuminated outfits, the coordination between the specialty lighting, AV, and effects contractors, and provided the engineering, fabrication, and installation of the Katy Perry chandelier center piece of the attraction.
