I think no one will get this, but reminds me of the ataging for Hamilton.

If you don't know it, "Hamilton" (the story of Amercan revolutionary Alexander Hamilton) is argueably the most popular Broadway show ever. I just saw it Tuesday night (I like to think of it as me having eclectic interests). The stage in the picture is a big turntable with an outer ring and inner disk that can rotate together or counter-rotate.

Now, regarding the revolution. Please take us back.

 I worked on a show at the local Entertainment Centre about ten years ago that had a stage like that setup in the middle of the general area....I think it was 'Grease' with Hugh Jackman...Stage was 15 or 20 metres (or more) diameter from memory
