Wednesday and when a caretaker discovered it three hours later.She said it resulted in "quite an extensive mess," and that the 430-seat theatre won't be ready in time"Basically, it is white powder from the extinguisher," she said. "It went all over the theatre, all over the stage and also all over the sound booth.

"Remai Modern removes ice sculpture honouring Neil Stonechild after vandalismBaker said a professional restoration company is already working on the cleanup, but the theatre is currently not safe."There's a concern that with the powder that comes from the extinguisher, it is literally everywhere, in the fabric of the seats on every surface," she said. "It's also hanging in the air.

"So there's an air quality concern there, as well as with the electronics with the theatre lighting, with the soundboard. There's no idea yet if there was any damage to those things."Baker said it was her understanding that set pieces were affected, as well.

The show must go onShe said the 65 students involved in the musical received the bad news earlier today."They met with the students this morning and obviously there were many upset," she said. "There were some tears, but many also said the show must go on.

"In an interview Thursday morning, Baker said the school was hoping to reach out to others in the theatre community and within the school division to see if there is another location where they can move the production.She said they were hoping to have something lined up so that they could resume their rehearsal schedule on Friday.By Thursday afternoon, Centennial Collegiate had been secured as the new venue.

Baker said police had been notified about the vandalism.

Introduction to Theatre Lighting
1. Commemorations of theatre lighting There has been a recentwhen? resurge of interest in the music of Pietro Deiro. In 1991 and 1992, composer/accordionist William Schimmel and his wife, dancer/choreographer/director Micki Goodman presented one of their major artistic collaborations: Opera Fisarmonica, a realization of the life and works of Pietro Deiro in extended opera form. It is a four-act opera devised and performed by Schimmel and Goodman, who did all of the singing, playing, movement, sets and lighting. It utilized the works of Pietro Deiro in a highly dramatized manner along with Schimmel's own music and continuity combined with Goodman's highly physicalized direction of movement. It was performed at the Sofian Theatre in New York and received praise and endorsement from Pietro Deiro Jr. (who attended the opening night) as well as a favorable review in the New York Times by Bernard Holland, which opened with the heading: "Accordionists' Patron Saint." In 2002, Museo Internazionale della Fisarmonica (The International Accordion Museum) of Castelfidardo, Italy, in collaboration with Music-tech, released a CD titled I Padri della Fisarmonica, vol. 1: Pietro Deiro, consisting of 23 original recordings by Pietro Deiro from 78 RPM records. In 2004, the Pietro Deiro Archives were donated to The Center for the Study of Free-Reed Instruments at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York by Pietro's granddaughters Sandra Cattani Deiro and Lynne C. Pancotti. In 2005, American author and concert accordionist Henry Doktorski wrote the first biography of Pietro and Guido Deiro: The Brothers Deiro and Their Accordions (The Classical Free-Reed, Inc.) and in 2006 Doktorski recorded on CD the first volume of The Complete Works of Pietro Deiro: Celebrated Polkas (The Classical Free-Reed, Inc.). In 2007, Bella Musica of Roma, Italy, released a 6-CD set: L'abilita artistica di Pietro Deiro (The Complete Recorded Works of Pietro Deiro from 78 RPM Records) to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Pietro's arrival in the United States in 1907. (See external links below.) On July 24, 25 and 26 2009, Dr. William Schimmel presented an audio/visual installation entitled 'Radiant Pietro', which consisted on an ambient soundtrack containing fragments of Pietro Deiro's entire musical output. Spectators were encouraged to page through a large, heavy book containing philosophical musings as well as slogans and pictures, the latter being vaudeville cutouts in black and white as well as color showing Pietro Deiro in various degrees of headlessness or disembodied or simply a displaced head in other parts of the body and accordion. The mystical aspect of it is a sense of Radiance that comes through saintly martyrdom or simply allowing the music to enter the world forever through an "uncorking" process. As a result, we have Radiant Pietro whose music will radiate through the aethers and the world forever. This installation was part of The American Accordionists' Association Master Class and Concert Series, The Seminars The 2009 title being 'Welcome Home Skinny' an anagram for 'Pietro's Return'. Dr. Schimmel is the moderator/curator for the series which just completed its fifteenth year. On July 30, 31 and August 1, 2010, Dr. William Schimmel supplied the score for an audio/visual installation by Cristine Speligene entitled Vesperae which consisted of rows of empty coffee cans with visual projections showing family and its relationship to coffee and caffeine. The score, although it contains some original music by Schimmel (At Least I Dropped Sorrow) and a quote from Charles Magnante (Accordiana), is largely devised from three Pietro Deiro compositions: Mancito (paso doble), El Cabrito (paso doble) and Arnilla (bolero). A simple cassette tape was placed into one the coffee cans producing a "tinny" yet "resonant" effect. This installation was part of The American Accordionists' Association Master Class and Concert Series, The Seminars The 2010 title being 'Don't Like Opera'. Dr. Schimmel is the moderator/curator for the series which just completed its 16th year. On July 31, 2016, Dr. William Schimmel performed his own 5-minute "House Version" of Pietro Deiro's Concerto in D one of his last and largest compositions dating back to 1950. "House Version" meaning performed under a steady implied pulse and suitable for a dance club. This took place at the Tenri Cultural Institute of New York as part of the American Accordionists' Association Master Class and Concert Series, The Seminars The Title being: No Place like Home. Dr. William Schimmel is Moderator and Curator of this series and this is the 22nd year. ------ 2.

Further decline and closure of theatre lighting The membership of Robertson Street fell from 42 in January 2010 to 28 at the time of closure in December 2012, mainly as a result of deaths. From January 2012, the congregation began exploring its future, ahead of the Local Mission & Ministry Review (LMMR) process due to take place later in the year. Given that the prospects of receiving a minister were slim (due to demands on URC ministry at this time), that there were major problems with the building which would be expensive to make good, and that there were three other URCs in the town as well as churches of other denominations all of whom would welcome new faces the congregation began to question whether the best move might well be to disperse as a fellowship and enrich the lives of other churches through the injection of new members. The path towards closure was first chosen on 21 September 2012 and confirmed on 30 November of the same year. In its time, Robertson Street URC was an engine for evangelism; it hosted meetings of the local committee of the London Missionary Society as well as the Hastings Council of Churches. Robertson Street URC closed on 30 December 2012. The church was registered in accordance with the Places of Worship Registration Act 1855; its number on the register was 28925. It was also registered for the solemnisation of marriages on 18 April 1887. Until its closure, Robertson Street United Reformed Church was in that denomination's Southern Synod, one of 13 Synods in Great Britain. As of 2010 the Synod was responsible for 168 United Reformed churches in southeast England, including Robertson Street and three others in the Borough of Hastings: Clive Vale, St Luke's and St Mark's. Re-opening - His PlaceSince 2014, the building has been owned by His Place Church under the Reverend Chris Sears, His Place having outgrown its existing premises at Duke Road which had been its base for 19 years. 35,000 was spent on roof repairs and fund-raising continues to permit repair of many parts of the building. Current usages alongside the church include a cafe, a theatre, a 'safe space', mental health support groups and many other community groups. Repairs requiredThe windows and stonework, together with ironwork require repairs costing in excess of 750,000 with additional repairs needed to the Robertson Street entrance. Much of the interior finish has been damaged due to damp ingress (both from the roof which has now been repaired, and leaking/insufficient number of gutters and downpipes). Fund-raising is continuing, both by means of 'sponsorship' of individual building elements and on-going events within the building. ------ 3. Composition of theatre lighting Stylistic aspectsTintinnabulation is the most important aspect of Prt's Magnificat. According to Prt's biographer and friend Paul Hillier, the Magnificat "displays the tintinnabuli technique at its most supple and refined." Prt also uses drones; a second-line G in the alto near the end of the piece, as well as the third-space C (on which the soprano solo line always stays) which provides a tonal center for the piece. Hillier says that "many pieces by Prt tend through length and repetition to establish a sense of timelessness or a continual present; the use of drones (which are in a sense a continuous repetition) reinforces this effect." Arvo Prt's wife Nora has said of his music, The concept of tintinnabuli was born from a deeply rooted desire for an extremely reduced sound world which could not be measured, as it were, in kilometres, or even metres, but only in millimetres.By the end the listening attention is utterly focused. At the point after the music has faded away it is particularly remarkable to hear your breath, your heartbeat, the lighting or the air conditioning system, for example.StructureStructurally, the work can be divided into what Hillier refers to as "verse" and "tutti" sections. The verse sections include one voice (often a soprano solo) which remains constantly on third-space C, as well as a lower, melodic line. The tutti sections make use of either three, four, or six voice parts. The soprano soloist joins in the tutti sections at times. The progression of sections is: Text settingSetting text to music can be accomplished in many different ways. Hillier says that Prt "works outwards from the structure of the text." In the tutti sections, "the number of syllables determines the notes to be used.the stressed syllable is alternately the pitch centre and, in the next word, the note furthest away from it." In verse sections, Prt "seems to have allowed himself an unusual degree of freedom.the stressed syllables do frequently coincide with a change of melodic direction." While the texture is mainly homophonic, a new rhythmic device is introduced when the choir sings "dispersit superbos". As if taking instruction from the text, the choir does, in fact, divide; while all voices begin the word together, only the melodic voice continues immediately onward. The other voices rest a beat before continuing with the second syllable. ------ 4.

Lego Builders of All Ages Unite at Convention in Richmond
Builders who have passed through their "Dark Ages" without Lego rediscover their youthWhen you imagine a Lego convention, your mind might conjure up a hall packed with kids indulging in their innate instinct to play.That would be about one-third correct. The other two-thirds are adults every bit as tapped into theirs.Thousands of Lego fans gathered over the weekend at the fourth BrickCan, a large exhibition of Lego held at Richmonds River Rock Casino Resort. What drew them were scores of astonishing creations assembled by Lego builders from around the world who are mature in both skill and age, many having spent decades practicing the art of building.Christina Loch created Museum of Textiles in the Fashion Arts for BrickCan 2019 at the River Rock Casino in Richmond. Photo: Arlen Redekop, PostmediaArlen Redekop / PNGBy some measures, builder Christina Loch is a relative newcomer to the world of Lego. Her rekindled enthusiasm for the building blocks kicked in just a few years ago, after she won a fight with cancer.I use this as art therapy, Loch said Sunday.The intricate, multidisciplinary work that Loch brought to display at the show was a modern and minimalist-looking original concept museum she dubbed the Museum of Textiles in the Fashion Arts, or MoTIF Arts, for short. The work blended her interests in architecture, interior design and textiles, she said.Inside MoTIF Arts is a miniature replica of a commercial flatbed fabric printer that is running a strip of hand-painted rice paper. On display in other sections of the museum are hand-painted fabric clothing and banners. The museums Textile Studio and Programs Department features replicas of an Ancient Greek warp-weighted loom, a silk spinner and a drop spinner.A program schedule posted outside the museum tells visitors what to expect inside. On Monday is a demonstration on spinning yarn using the drop spindle. On Wednesdays is a class on spinning silk thread from silk worms.Other creations built by Lochs fellow Adult Fans of Lego and on display at BrickCan included intricate castles, sleek fighter jets, cityscapes and spaceships, and even a full amusement park complete with moving carousels and thrill rides, a ferris wheel and a roller coaster.Jason von Innerebner displays his Flix Theatre at BrickCan 2019 at the River Rock Casino in Richmond. Photo: Arlen Redekop, PostmediaArlen Redekop / PNGJason von Innerebner built an impressive piece he dubbed Flix Theatre, a cinema with a balcony, grand staircases, theatre lighting, and a built-in pre-film animation wheel that presents a moving picture. Star Wars a Brix Flix reads a scrolling marquee out front. The moving image is of a lightsabre battle between Darth Vader and a disposable Jedi, as von Innerebner put it.The theatre was built with 30-40 thousand pieces, he said.Ley Ward is among the organizers of the convention. He became an avid builder around the age of 10 and made many creations before he entered a period that builders chillingly refer to as their Dark Age a phase when Lego is tucked into a closet, passed on to children, or sold at garage sales rather than being used.Wards Dark Age lasted 25 years. He is now 58, the owner of an estimated half-million bricks, and nicknamed the Wizard for his building skills.Its just really fun to challenge yourself and see what you can come up with, and to bounce ideas off each other, which is what we do here. Were brainstorming stuff for next year already, he said.Nicole Gent and Colby Goss created The Sea of Wonders for BrickCan 2019 at the River Rock Casino in Richmond.

A Whistle in the Dark
The Abbey TheatreWritten by Tom Murphy, directed by Conall Morrison, starring Don Wycherley, Clive Geraghty, Declan Conlon.'A Whistle in the Dark' was Tom Murphy's first full-length play; it premiered in 1961. A violent work, both in word and action, it's a conventionally structured tragedy that speeds inexorably to its terrible conclusion. The fact that it's still unnerving gives an inkling of the impact it had when first performed.Michael Carney is an Irishman living in Coventry with his young wife, Betty. He has given lodgings to his three brothers as they establish themselves there, but far from showing him gratitude for his generosity, he is treated with derision and terrorised in his own home. Declan Conlon gives a fine performance as the quiet, reflective, walking-doormat.The ringleader in this abuse is Harry, a strutting thug, who has never forgiven Michael for whatever perceived slights accumulated over the years. Played by Don Wycherley, Harry drips with menace from equal parts physical and psychological intimidation. It's a strong performance that credibly reveals the resentments behind his anger. Harry goads his host about everything from being a physical coward to being a relative failure in his career, despite the fact that he's the one with the roof over his head.Hugo and 'Iron Man' Iggy Carney are both significantly further down the evolutionary ladder than their leader and follow everything that Harry proposes. This mob mentality, even within one family, is frighteningly conjured in generously understated turns by Gary Lydon (who has to be cast as Brendan Behan some day) and David Herlihy respectively. Phelim Drew provides great comic relief as Mush, the ex-class clown, who has never outgrown his role as nervy, flinching cocker spaniel to Harry's ruthless master.The explosion of these old familial animosities is precipitated by the arrival of Dada Carney escorting the youngest, Des (Barry Ward), a gangly 15-year-old, to his new life in England with his brothers. Clive Geraghty's patriarch is a fascinating creation. He easily convinces as the proud, self-deluding ex-Guard who instigated vicious games of mock-fighting between his boys as children. This early education in violence has led all the brothers bar Michael to embrace this as the way of gaining respect in a land that despises their boorishness.While Dada stokes the flames, it is really the presence of the impressionable Des that provides the flashpoint. He is the innocent soul over which good and evil compete, but when the devil's still got the best tunes, not to mention hair-oil and a cool leather jacket, what hope for the poor kid! Fintan O'Toole has quite rightly pointed out the similarities between Pinter's 'The Homecoming' and this work that predates it. Both are concerned with masculinity in crisis and tension within one family as brothers struggle for dominance. But here, Betty's token female (Cathy Belton) is unable to harness any of the power of Pinter's femme fatale. The men all treat her with contempt, especially by her more 'sensitive', feminised husband.This muscular, confident production from director, Conall Morrison contains shockingly brutal fight scenes ably choreographed by fight director, Donal O'Farrell. My only reservation is with the set. The living room where all the action takes place is a realistic '60s room, yet behind and above stand the cranes on the building sites, where the brothers are presumably working as labourers. Apart from the fact that they look more like a theatre lighting rig that has partially collapsed at the back of the stage, they are completely superfluous to the drama.Firmly reminding Irish audiences of the raw, fresh talent that was unleashed forty years ago, Tom Murphy is deservedly celebrated in this production as part of the six-play revival at the Abbey within this year's Theatre Festival.Nick McGinley
My Kingdom for a Roof: Shakespeare's Globe Building Indoor Theatre Alongside Open-air Venue
LONDON - Shakespeare's Globe, the open-air London playhouse that helped win modern audiences over to all-weather outdoor theatregoing, is embracing the great indoors.The Globe on Tuesday unveiled details of a new indoor venue that will sit alongside the O-shaped Elizabethan-style theatre on the banks of the River Thames.Built from 17th-century plans, it will allow audiences to remain warm and dry as they watch candlelit performances of plays by the Bard and his successors and, its creators hope, cast those classic plays in a new light."We're hoping it will prove as great a revelation as this building has," said Globe artistic director Dominic Dromgoole, referring to the open-air theatre that opened in 1997. "In the simplest terms, it's called going back to the future."The Sam Wanamaker Theatre named for the late American actor-director who spent decades realizing his dream of rebuilding Shakespeare's playhouse near its original site is due to open in January 2014, and will allow the Globe to hold performances year-round for the first time.Modeled loosely on the long-vanished Blackfriars playhouse where Shakespeare's company, the King's Men, performed in winter, the timber-framed space will hold 350 people, in seated galleries and a standing-room pit.Dromgoole said that in true 17th-century style, it would feature "a lot of people packed tight into a very small space bulging with humanity."In another nod to authenticity, the oak-framed, wood-paneled theatre will be lit by candles, no small achievement in our safety-conscious times.Martin White, a leading expert on theatre lighting and a consultant to the project, said that with modern safety techniques open flames in a wooden theatre can be perfectly safe and convincing the London Fire Brigade proved remarkably easy."I was quite surprised," he said. "They became really interested in the project. I think they wanted to see live flames lighting a performance in the theatre. They became enthusiastic about it, and that is always the best start for everything."Dromgoole pointed out that the Globe has a history of getting permission to bend building rules. In the 1990s it became the first thatch-roofed building constructed in London since the Great Fire of 1666. Thatched roofs were banned in London after the fire, which razed much of the medieval city.The new venue is being built based on drawings found at Oxford University's Worcester College in the 1960s the earliest surviving plans for an indoor theatre.No theatre buildings from that era survive, and many questions remain about how they were constructed.Farah Karim-Cooper, head of the Globe's architecture research group, said the goal was "to build a theatre Shakespeare might recognize," rather than a reconstruction of any particular venue.Wanamaker, who died in 1993, dreamed of an indoor theatre beside the Globe's outdoor space, and the shell of the venue was built as part of the reconstruction. But financial constraints prevented it from being completed at the same time as the Globe.The company has raised most of the 7.5 million pound ($12 million) cost of the new venue from individuals and charitable trusts.Shakespeare's Globe opened amid skepticism some thought it would be a kitschy tourist trap. It turned out to be a huge success, drawing 1 million visitors a year and winning over audiences and critics with productions that use staging techniques of the past to shed new light on old plays.The company's all-male productions of "Richard III" and "Twelfth Night" starring former Globe artistic director Mark Rylance opened this month to glowing reviews in London's West End after a summer run at the Globe.Dromgoole said the new space would expand the company's repertoire to include works by Jacobean dramatists who followed Shakespeare, such as Thomas Middleton and John Webster.What it will reveal about those plays is, for now, a mystery."We're doing it as an experiment," Dromgoole said. "We're doing it as a leap into the unknown."
5 Theatre Lighting Tips to Make Your School Production a Big Success
A lot goes into making a successful school production. From rehearsals to set-building, it takes everyone working together to awaken that theater magic. You may not hear anyone exclaiming over the "amazing stage lighting" after the show, but that doesn't mean good lighting isn't just as important as good acting. Whether your school is performing a musical, drama, or comedy; a classic play or a contemporary one, here are five basic tips for those backstage renegades, the lighting crew, to follow: 1.) Learn your play. Even though the lighting crew won't be performing on stage, it's still important for everyone to be thoroughly familiar with the play. Discussing how you interpret the action and dialogue in each scene helps decide what kind of lighting is needed to really bring the story to life for your audience. 2.) Know your equipment. Before you start setting down a lighting plan, know what kind of lighting system your school has to work with. Get acquainted with each piece of equipment so you know everything that's possible with your system. Sometimes it's necessary to replace old equipment. Other times you may want to do a special effect that is beyond your system's capabilities. Thinking of a creative alternative is one option, but you can always try talking with your director to see if buying new or extra equipment is in your school's budget. 3.) Use Color to set the mood. Colored stage lighting dates back to Shakespearean times when light was filtered through red wine or brightly-hued silks. Later on, colored panels made of gelatin would become the method of choice. The term "colored gels" or just "gels" is still used in modern theater today, even though filters are now made of more durable materials. Because the human psyche associates each color with a set of emotions and concepts, using colored lighting at key points in your play enhances the mood, or even foreshadows what's about to take place. Warm colors, such as red, orange, and yellow, relay energy. Red is associated with passion, love, or anger. Cool colors, which include green, blue, and purple, have a more subdued effect. Blue in particular is very calming. Colors also have connotations that are securely embedded in our minds, such as purple and royalty. 4.) Add patterns for an extra dimension to the set. Gobos are attachments that turn solid lights into interesting patterns. They can be made from cut metal or colored glass. Not everything on your set needs to be represented by physical props. Gobos can simulate grass, trees, flowered wallpaper, a starry sky, or even a stain-glass window. Instead of building these features into your sets, save time and money by using patterned lights. 5.) Incorporate movement to produce special effects. Plays require audiences to use their imagination, but that doesn't mean you can't give them a little help now and then. Bring a scene to life with gently falling rain, swirling snow, or lazily drifting clouds. Gobo rotators make such effects possible by allowing you to move light patterns across the set at various speeds and directions. Prism rotators are another great lighting tool to create multi-dimensional effects. They let you overlap images and various colors for greater depth. Bouncing light off smoke created by fog machines is another great way to capture movement with your stage lighting. Some scripts include lighting cues, while others are completely open for interpretation. Don't be afraid to try new things and take risks with stage lighting , always bearing in mind the quality of proven techniques. It takes everything and everyone working together to make your school production a show to remember. Center stage won't shine without hard work backstage. So when it's time for your motley lighting crew to do their thing, use these five tips to make opening night a dazzling event.

Traktor Audio 6 Recognizes Only One Deck When Pluging into My Mac Pro, What Should I Do?
I can not post this as a comment yet, so it will have to be an answer. Usually this happens when the audio signal is screwed up somehow coming from the table. Set Traktor to scope view and see what the signal looks like. Check the settings in the audio 6 control panel- is direct monitoring on? Are the line input sensitivities set properly? Did you try rebooting the Macbook and/or plugging the audio 6 in on a different USB? Are you using an external power supply, or are you powering over the USB? Are you using timecode vinyl? Are your needles clean/connected properly? Are your grounds connected? Do you have the deck set to CD/LINE rather than to TURNTABLE/PHONO? There are many things it could be; a better description of what it is doing might help. :) Hope this helps.1. Mac Pro: Kernel panic during HDD boot and DVD bootIt is probably your video card. The 2007 MBP's were prone to this.Here is how you can tell. Download the Ultimate Boot CD. Burn it to a DVD or a USB StickYou will launch Linux with a ton of useful diagnostic tools. Run everything, but especially the video display diagnostic tool.Mine was throwing errors and I was able to definitively find the cause of the problem. I was able to find a guy in Tampa that would upgrade the video card on the Logic Board for about $100. I did the service and it worked great. MBP still running to this day. Let me know if you are interested and I will post his info2. Mac Pro Memory Installation Problem: Missing RAM in certain slotsYou need to follow the memory layout suggested on the side door, and the instructions in the manual that shipped with your Mac Pro. The memory layouts have changed significantly from the older 2007 model Mac Pros.edit: link to the memory replacement manual for early 2008 Mac Pros.3. Formatted my mac pro HDD, how do i install mac os x on it?Did you not use or receive instructions or documentation on how to do this? Before you wiped the hard disk clean?4. What should I get, a Mac Pro 13" or a Sony Vaio CW?Macbook Pro* Mac Pro is the tower computer. And it depends on what you need it for. If you do not need something extremely fast the Macbook Pro should be plenty.5. Cannot access vital boot options on Mac Pro with OS X LionIt's extremely strange that you were not getting EFI boot options to work from a wired keyboard.I note that the EFI startup commands you listed that worked used either the Shift key modifier or the Option AND Cmd modifier. The commands that did not work used either Option OR Cmd. Makes you wonder. ..You do know that the keys that generate "Option" and "Cmd" keycodes are typically reversed from a PC to a Mac keyboard, correct? (It's easy to forget if you normally have them remapped in System Preferences->Keyboard.) Is it possible you were using the wrong modifier keys at startup time?Also very strange that the nvram dump shows your desktop machine had been assigned a name that implied it was previously a laptop. If the previous owner used some sort of imaging tool to initialize your machine but took the image from a different model of Mac I can imagine all sorts of strange things could be going wrong.6. What's your favorite MAC pro product?None of them. I bet better results and a much better price with mary Kay7. Why does my mac pro suddenly suck?Suddenly? haha They always suck dude. =] Try deleting unnecessary stuff and defragging your hard drive. Also check the programs running in the background. Like media players, anti-virus software, Limewire, ect; These things can slow down you are computer. Make sure you have all the most current updates also. That and more RAM will make your computer faster...8. My Mac Pro won't take a CD I try to insert. It's really important.?Does it take other CDs? Then that CD is bad. If it does not take any CD the drive is probably bad9. will a mac pro run diablo 3?Yh, My Brother has a Mac Book air and Plays Diablo 3. Really good game too
