2001 Gary Fails Interview with Fred Foster
Remembering Fred Foster

City Theatrical had a special relationship with Fred Foster. We began designing accessories for ETC products when Source Four launched in the '90s, and Fred always went out of his way to support us and take an interest in our technology. He made us feel like members of an extended ETC family. In 2001, I interviewed Fred at the PLASA show for a business school project. In reviewing it again, I think it's a fitting tribute to an incredible man and what made him unique.
