I Wanna Hold Your Hand and Oh What A Night are a pair of jukebox musicals created for a Cruise Ship audience. The challenge was to maintain a narrative drive within a format of individual numbers and set-piece medleys. Sophisticated lighting and a wonderfully inventive projection/LED plot are integral to the solution.
