|QolorFLEX NuNeon at Freestyle Love Supreme Broadway||
We used QolorFLEX NuNeon to create the large “FLS” sign that is mounted directly in front of the back wall, behind the performers on stage. We wanted a bright neon sign that could change color, and be able to tour with the show. QolorFLEX NuNeon gives us what we wanted and needed – something bright, and colorful, with the flexibility and durability to last through our upcoming tour. We can have the sign stand out, or recede, based on similar or contrasting light color of the back wall. It is super bright, and really pops when we want it to. It gives us many layers of options.

|QolorFLEX® NuNeon and QolorFLEX 24x3A Dimmers at the Duke Dumont Show at the Shrine Auditorium||
When British Electronic Artist Duke Dumont was looking for an asymmetrical, central set piece to unveil at his Shrine Auditorium performance in Los Angeles, California and kick off his new tour, Scenic Designer Cort Lawrence, Lighting Designer Chris Thoms, and the tour's design teams sought a flexible LED linear lighting solution that could be bright enough to stand out in the darkness, and rugged enough to stand multi-year, multi-continent travel.
When the tour's fabricator, Rise Fabrication, started building the set piece, the design teams were first introduced to QolorFLEX NuNeon. Find out how they used a combination of 48 reels of QolorFLEX NuNeon, RGB and QolorFLEX 24x3A Dimmers to create the set piece concept, which amazed the artist and audiences alike.
|QolorFLEX NuNeon, RGB and QolorFLEX 5x8A Dimmers in Das Rheingold’s Rainbow Bridge, presented at the Lobero Theatre produced by Opera Santa Barbara||
Das Rheingold was the first opera to re-open to a live audience in California’s Central Coast region. Everyone involved in the production process was very excited and anxious to flex our muscles again. I was not entirely sure if all my design and production reflexes would respond, but just like riding a bicycle, we stepped right into our roles with enthusiasm. Crystal Manich, the show’s director, and I decided to stage the orchestra in view, with the singers, as a celebration of this reunion with the audience. This proved to be immensely cathartic, especially as the lighting engulfed the whole theater to form Das Rheingold’s climactic Rainbow Bridge.
QolorFLEX NuNeon was essential in the realization of this design. Since the Orchestra was staged on a series of risers, I decided to use QolorFLEX NuNeon to define and frame the negative space while bringing focus to the stage through a series of concentric portals. The lack of elaborate scenery was easily circumvented by the striking intensity, dynamic response, and color accuracy of QolorFLEX NuNeon, RGB which, with the help of a well designed LED lighting system, allowed us to create rich visual and emotional landscapes. QolorFLEX NuNeon’s ease of installation allowed us to keep our load-in to one day, with two days of prep. It was a huge advantage for this production.
|QolorFLEX NuNeon in the Pink Sparrow Office Renovation Automated Staircase Design in Brooklyn, New York||
The Pink Sparrow team is constantly evolving the look and feel of their office space to cultivate creativity and exemplify their brand’s personality and the quality of products they design and install. At the Brooklyn office, the internal staircase provided the opportunity to showcase the team’s expertise in LED lighting products in a playful way that could inspire clients visiting the shop, and demonstrate how certain design elements, like linear LED lighting, and techniques can be applied to an experiential activation.
With a design encompassing a collection of symbols that represent facets of the shop’s unique culture, such as a CRUSHING IT! Hand to celebrate hard work, the Pink Sparrow team sought an LED tape solution that would look as bold and bright as traditional neon, with the LED benefits of ease of use, color-changing automation, and interactivity.
City Theatrical’s QolorFLEX NuNeon was selected as the solution to create the staircase design installation at Pink Sparrow’s Brooklyn office. QolorFLEX NuNeon types used to create this installation include: 20 meters of RGB, 5 meters of Green, 10 meters of Cool White, 10 meters of Neutral White, and 10 meters of Warm White.
|QolorFLEX® NuNeon™, Red in Ripley’s Myrtle Beach Outdoor Signage in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina||
Ripley’s Myrtle Beach in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, USA is an attraction that locals and tourists have been enjoying since the 1990s. While its close proximity to the beach may be a perfect location for beach goers, the waterfront location became an issue for the building’s traditional neon signage over the years. In addition to the ongoing maintenance typically associated with traditional neon signs due to the outdoor elements, the constant humidity in the air was causing erosion to the sign’s copper leads.
To prevent these issues, the team at YESCO Myrtle Beach sought a LED linear lighting solution that could be installed easily, withstand the outdoor elements, and maintain its brightness day and night. Their ideal solution would help them upgrade the building’s sign with the benefits of LED lighting, maintain the look of bright neon, and also provide the flexibility and ease of use to set up and maintain the sign.
City Theatrical’s QolorFLEX NuNeon, Red was selected as the solution to replace the traditional neon of the Ripley’s Myrtle Beach sign. The team at YESCO created a 1/8” deep track that was 0.37” wide, in the exact layout of the Ripley’s iconic logo, which enabled them to press and click the QolorFLEX NuNeon into place. They secured the tape with silicone, and drilled holes for power
|QolorFLEX NuNeon, NW and Meanwell Power Supplies at Holiday Star Installation at St. Michael’s Parish Church in Edinburgh, Scotland||
As part of an ongoing tradition to celebrate Christmas at St Michael’s Parish Church of Scotland, the production team at Blue Parrot was commissioned to refurbish the star that is installed annually above the church for the Edinburgh community to see and enjoy – just in time for Christmas.
The production team custom made an aluminum frame in the shape of a star and was looking for an LED product that would be flexible enough to cover it, yet bright enough to be seen throughout the city. They also required a power supply that could work seamlessly with the selected LED product.
At a height of 160 feet above the ground, the ideal LED solution would also be IP67 rated and rugged enough to withstand the winds and extreme temperatures of winter weather in Scotland.
City Theatrical’s QolorFLEX NuNeon, Natural White and 150w Mean Well Power Supply were selected as the solution for this project and can be seen shining above the church tower at night throughout the holiday season.
“There is no other product on the market that came close to meeting all of our needs. With QolorFLEX NuNeon, the star shines incredibly brightly, and comments have already started to flood in on how effective it looks. We are delighted with the final result.” - Mike Somerville, Head of Productions, Blue Parrot
|QolorFLEX NuNeon, RGB, QolorFLEX RGB LED Tape, QolorFLEX 4x2.5A Dimmers, and Power Supplies in Macy’s Herald Square “Believe In Wonder” Holiday Windows in New York, New York||
As their seventh time creating the holiday windows for Macy’s Herald Square, the creative team from Standard Transmission worked closely with Macy’s Visual Merchandising department to develop a design concept that tied in with Macy’s national holiday 2019 marketing campaign, “Believe in Wonder”. This year’s aesthetic was meant to have a high end look and feel, using more accent lighting and neon as a central element.
With six 15’ x 8’ x 6’ windows to fill, the creative team was tasked with reducing the scale of their inspirations, like Times Square and opera in New York, to fit inside these “small stages” and tell a story. Half of the window designs required extensive use of neon, and they sought an LED neon replacement product that could bend easily, be bright enough to transition from day to night, and could be programmed to change color upon button press by passersby.
City Theatrical’s QolorFLEX NuNeon was selected to provide the brightness and interactivity the team was looking for. Three of the windows called for a total of 32 reels of RGB and 11 reels of single color QolorFLEX NuNeon - almost 300 feet in total. Ten QolorFLEX wireless DMX Dimmers provided dimming control to help bring interactive lighting effects to life.
|QolorFLEX NuNeon, RGB and QolorFLEX 4x2.5A Dimmers in The Flamingo Kid at Hartford Stage in Hartford, CT||
Inspired by the neon artwork being created and displayed in New York in the 1960’s, the scenic and lighting designers for The Flamingo Kid at the Hartford Stage collaborated to design an “El Flamingo Beach Club” sign that would establish the setting of the show by hanging directly above the stage. It was designed to be a featured piece, and was one of the most important scenic elements of the production.
To maintain the integrity of the era for which it was designed, the designers sought to find a traditional neon replacement product that would provide the brightness and clarity of a neon sign and not only look good on stage, but also emit the same kind of glow that real neon does. They considered LED-based lighting solutions to avoid the delicacy of installation and maintenance of traditional neon, and incorporate the ability to change colors and dim the sign during the show.
City Theatrical’s QolorFLEX NuNeon RGB was selected as the lighting solution for the show’s “El Flamingo” sign, based on its ability to replicate traditional neon’s brightness and glow, change colors, and dim easily in combination with other QolorFLEX products
|QolorFLEX 5-in-1 LED Tape at Girl Says Woman Says Man Says by Rutgers Theatre Company in New Brunswick, New Jersey||“With QolorFLEX, it was easy to get set up and create a unique environment on stage.

|QolorFLEX® LED Tape, RGBA, QolorFLEX 5x8A Dimmers, QolorFLEX NuNeon, WW and CW, and QolorFLEX 24x3A Dimmers at Doctor Faustus Lights the Lights at Yale University in New Haven, CT||
As a production about light, the creative team sought to communicate light in different ways - as infinite and expansive, harsh when created by Doctor Faustus, and tangible and welcoming when “Marguerite Ida and Helena Annabel” finds herself in control in Act II.
Yale senior undergraduate student and lighting designer for the production Ryan Seffinger drafted wall-sized LED lightboxes to represent the more abstract design concept, in a style reminiscent of light installations by American artists James Turrell and Dan Flavin. To make these LED lightboxes come to life with amber colored light and mobility, he needed an LED tape solution that was bright, dimmable, and flexible. To create tangible-looking light, he sought a bright white LED linear lighting solution that could be folded easy into shapes.
City Theatrical’s QolorFLEX RGBA LED Tape controlled by QolorFLEX 5x8A Dimmers was selected for the lightboxes, setting the abstract space for each scene by changing orientation and color. QolorFLEX NuNeon, controlled by QolorFLEX 24x3A Dimmers to create a pulsing effect, was folded into rounded rectangles and suspended midair to create a bold, linear look.
|QolorFLEX NuNeon, RGB and Accessories, QolorFLEX RGB LED Tape, and QolorFLEX 4x2.5A Dimmers in Freaky Friday Presented by Coolidge Middle SchoolDrama Department in Reading, Massachusetts||
With a SHoW Baby 6 wireless DMX system already in place, the creative team for Freaky Friday was looking for a way to create an urban Chicago setting using bright, color-changing LED products that could be controlled wirelessly. With limited transition time between scenes and a cast including 55 middle schoolers and an additional 45 students working backstage, the ideal solution would not only add dimension and visual interest, but also require minimal relocation after installation, and be simple and safe to use in a high traffic area.
The script called for an oversized hourglass that would be “broken” in half on stage. This presented one of the largest challenges of the show to the creative team: Designing a prop that could create a magical effect, while using two separate lighting and wireless DMX control systems.
City Theatrical’s QolorFLEX NuNeon was selected as the lighting solution to outline the Chicago skyline that spanned the 40-foot-wide stage. The skyline was set in two layers, one at each wireless DMX controlled portal, to add dimension with color-changing RGB LEDs that have the look and brightness of traditional neon, but with easier setup and wireless DMX dimming control
|QolorFLEX NuNeon, RGB and QolorFLEX 3x10A Dimmers at Hudson New York, a Morgans Original hotel in New York City||
The Hudson Hotel, known for its daring design aesthetic, has two prominent escalators at the focal point of its entrance on West 58th Street in New York City.
Yellowish green neon tubes were originally installed under the handrails, running the entire length of the escalators, to match the color scheme and aesthetic of the rest of the hotel.
Over time, the neon deteriorated and faded significantly. The high cost of repairs and consistent foot traffic made it difficult to maintain the look of the entrance for hotel guests.
The Hudson Hotel reached out to City Theatrical dealer Barbizon Lighting Company for help with improving their main entrance and updating their escalator lighting.
City Theatrical suggested that QolorFlex NuNeon, an LED product that resembles neon tube, could be a solution for this project. As an extremely bright and flexible sealed LED linear product, QolorFLEX NuNeon was selected because it is unbreakable, with a high bend radius that allows for easy manipulation, and could be cut to length on site. Unlike traditional neon, QolorFLEX NuNeon, RGB can be controlled to produce any color, including yellow.
QolorFLEX NuNeon could also run in a complete straight line over the length of the escalators rather than being broken up by power inputs for the neon tubes.
