Research for Cinderella- Glee Style

The preliminary (i.e. subject to change) song list for the Gooseberry Park Players production of Cinderella^4 has been released.  It includes music ranging from More Than Words by Extreme to You're My Best Friend by Queen to Today Was a Fairytale by Taylor Swift.  It wouldn't be complete without some Ke$ha We R Who We R.  Since the show breaks into fully produced performances of pop songs, much like in Glee, I have the challenge of lighting a wide variety of styles of music.  I'm starting out by collecting photos of what the original tours actually looked like.  Katy Perry, for example, has strips of vanity light bulbs in one of her tours.  Michael Buble has florescent lights in different colors hanging vertically over the stage.  Queen, of course, has a wall of PAR cans behind them.  Now to try to figure out which ideas to incorporate and which ideas to scrap.  More on that later....
