  • What Unions Represent Broadway Folks?  Mar 29 2017, 10:39:03 PM

    Theatrical marketing is also one of the few big Broadway areas that's not unionized.

    I was super disappointed at the highlights reel -- we literally only got to hear just Tony singing anything!

  • Unconfirmed ATC rumor: Isherwood gone from NYT?  Feb 7 2017, 12:47:50 PM

    newintown said: "If the numbers in that article are true, a 19% drop in ad revenue, on top of the slow decline in Times ad sales and subscription/readership over the past decade would lead me to believe they plan to scale back on all arts coverage and writers."

    They should probably bring their online advertising portals into the 21st Century. I can't even describe how difficult it is to manage advertising in the NYT.

  • SUNDAY IN THE PARK withdraws from Tony Eligibility  Feb 5 2017, 01:51:47 AM

    Wick3 said: "Given Tony voters won't get comp'd seats for Sunday in the Park, do you think they will nonetheless pay the premium prices to grab a great seat to watch Jake & Annaleigh perform? After all, Tony voters are big fans of Broadway, right?"

    Most Tony voters are likely at least able to get house seats (which are generally prime locations at regular orchestra price).

    Outsiders pissing off the Broadway establishment has definitely had ramifications come Tony time before.

  • Telecharge Service Fees?  Jan 28 2017, 10:16:21 PM

    ArtMan said: "So Taryn, when I bought tickets for a concert two days before my Lionel Richie show and was charged the usual $10 -$12 per ticket  and then charged $31 for Lionel, according to your theory Ticketmaster must have hired a hell of alot more people and their operating expenses tripled, so that is why I paid more than their usual fee cost.  My original post was NOT why does Ticketmaster charge fees but why did the usual $12 fee go up to $31 for this concert.  

  • Telecharge Service Fees?  Jan 28 2017, 11:48:36 AM

    Rangersrule said: "Interestjng, I've never heard of that much being charged in fees. However, they are providing a medium in which you are able to buy tickets from the convince of your home and be able to print your own tickets out at home. They can charge whatever they want to charge when they are one of only a few tickey buying platforms out there. "

    haterobics said: "I've never sorted out why, when I act as my own box office manager, select my own seats, process my own payment, and use my own computer, printer, and ink to create my own ticket, *I* have to pay more money... but if I go to the box office, and make someone who is already on salary do that, and use all of their resources, then it is free? Doesn't that seem backwards?"

    The show pays for the box office to be open at the theater. Online ti

    IdinaBellFoster said: "I loved the suggestion that Miranda doesn't sing. Would be very effective if she only sang during her breakdown scene in Paris. It's really the only moment for the character the begs to be musicalized."

    Honestly that would be pretty brilliant. And keep even that song restrained.

    Sierra Boggess is way too up in age to play "Andy"... 

    She's only three years older than Osnes. Early 30s can play early 20s on the stage easily.

    It's Montserrat. Which isn't bolded, but this is how it looks bolded.

  • Do salaries influence ticket prices?  Oct 16 2016, 10:24:20 AM

    One thing to keep in mind that there are many more salaries in play than just actor's.  Stage managers, stagehands, musicians, company managers -- those are all substantial as well, and all of the salaries at play in a show contribute to the overhead.  I would say yes, they are one reason among many for rising ticket prices, because any rising costs will contribute to rising prices.  But it's one among many factors at play.

    There's always talk of "g

  • First Musical you ever saw?  Oct 10 2016, 11:54:40 AM

    The earliest I can remember is seeing a tour of Camelot with Robert Goulet as Arthur.  I think I was around 10 or so.

  • Worst Marketing you've seen.  Sep 29 2016, 03:18:51 PM

    Roundabout has an in-house marketing department but also uses agencies for their advertising.  Generally (but not always) SPOTCo for advertising and Situation Interactive for digital.

  • Top Theatregoing Experiences  Sep 10 2016, 12:03:09 AM

    Going Off-Off-Broadway here, but Samuel & Alasdair: A Personal History of the Robot War by The Mad Ones is still one of my favorite nights I've ever spent in a theatre.

    The wall coming up at the end of the original Roundabout Cabaret revival when I was 16 is still indelibly etched in my mind.

  • Farewell Jersey Boys!!!  Sep 7 2016, 12:03:25 AM

    I remember seeing it right before the Tonys in its first year and thinking it was directed focused and fast as a freight train.  It was a great night of theatre.

  • Best Broadway Ad Campaigns/Designs of All Time  Aug 30 2016, 04:47:55 PM

    Several already mentioned have been recent favorites of mine -- Something Rotten, Gentleman's Guide -- and I'll add Hand to God for doing some super clever advertising.  I loved the Playbill ads they did that were customized to the show they were being printed in.
