Steinberg will begin working independently on Broadway and in other markets.
Acme Sound Partners, currently represented on Broadway with The Addams Family and The Mother With the Hat, will continue to provide sound design services for Broadway shows, touring productions and other live music and theatre events.
Steinberg will continue to serve as lead designer for Acme on projects previously scheduled prior to his departure, and on running productions for which he is already performing that role. Acme Sound Partners will continue its current business under the supervision of founding partners Clark and Menard, and associate partner Sten Severson.
Steinberg said in a statement, "I will always be proud of my time with Acme and our productive partnership over the last 11 years. Transitions are challenging, but I am excited to embark on this next phase of my career. I look forward to continuing my work with the great artists and professionals of this community with renewed dedication and vigor."
Menard added, "During this transition, Acme Sound Partners looks forward to a second decade of providing exceptional sound design work in all facets of the entertainment industry, and we wish Nevin well on his future projects." Acme Sound Partners has provided sound design services for over 30 Broadway plays and musicals and numerous touring and international productions. The firm has been nominated for four Tony Awards and received three Drama Desk Awards.
