iHeartRadioTheater Uses Luckett & Farley
From Radio World’s Who’s Buying What page:
Clear Channel’s new iHeartRadioTheater LA venue in Los Angeles employed the services of Luckett & Farley’s Media + Entertainment Group, which acted as architect, engineer and interior designer.
The venue is at Stage 3 inside Burbank Studios, the former NBC Studios, in California. Notably, the theater is at the spot where “The Tonight Show” starring Johnny Carson aired and where Jay Leno broadcasts.
“IHeartRadio Theater LA is unique by virtue of its multi-functionality,” the company stated. “It will be an industry-leading space for intimate, live music performances, which will then be broadcast to multiple media platforms nationwide. Clear Channel will also utilize the location for corporate events and town hall meetings. Finally, it will serve as the setting for state of the art ‘red carpet’ movie premieres and screenings.” Luckett & Farley has worked in the past on Clear Channel’s National Programming Platforms/iHeartRadio headquarters space in New York and other projects.
The project manager for this job was Senior Designer William J. Hallisky. He called the theater “an industry-defining space unlike any other in the Los Angeles area.” Highlights include production areas for audio, radio and video control, boxed luxury seating on a VIP/mezzanine level; hospitality and VIP suites with bathrooms and pantries; dressing rooms with private restrooms, hair and makeup stations; an interactive high-definition LED multimedia wall; and a sculptural, monumental steel staircase.
“Sustainable and authentic materials, including wood, concrete, stone and steel, are used throughout and the space is adorned with original iHeartRadio artwork,” the supplier said.
