In 2012 Cymbal Guy made it to Broadway! The remote pedal version was first used in the pit of the Richard Rodgers Theatre for
the Tony-Award-Winning revival of "Porgy and Bess." It allowed Charles Descarfino, the show's drummer/percussionist,

Soon after it was also used in the Imperial Theatre for "Nice Work If You Can Get It." Cymbal Guy's crashes can be
heard on both cast albums.
