Cuelist is the brainchild of Josh Epstein. As a lighting designer who has spent thousands of hours in theaters over the last 20 years, Josh always wondered if there wasn't a better way to share information and collaborate while sitting in rehearsal. For the last few years Josh has taken that question and put it to action with a team of developers to create the first program designed specifically to help stage managers, designers and backstage crew communicate and collaborate during the development of live performance events.
