Suprised no one has mentioned this yet, but anyone else hink the new art for the show i.e. the one where the ladies are holding up Matthew and an atrocious photoshopped Kelli O'Hara has been added is freakishly bad. Worst I've seen in awhile! Unfortunately (or fortunately) I couldn't find it to post here, but theatre folks I'm sure will know what I'm referring to. Thoughts?

Why did they need new artwork? The original drawn one was fine, and was clearly O'Hara and Broderick.

Here's the original (at least the same moment):
And here's the new ad:

I'm sure this is just an ad...

Is taking a picture featuring them just too hard that they have to make something so half assed? This is BROADWAY people! Not your high school production!

Thanks for the post TheatreGuy! I just think it's a travesty to the 2 stars, there has to be a publicity shot we haven't seen. That picture is just poorly done by whatever ad agency is marketing the show. Are there other examples of such poor photoshopping recently?

As mush as I LOVE this show and think this is cute, I, too, wonder why they couldn't take 2 seconds and take a REAL picture or two? The photoshopping is pretty obvious and not well done.
THE ADDAMS FAMILY ads after the original cast left were far worse. ESPECIALLY those with Brooke Shields.

Professional graphic design has hit a new low....and it keeps on going down the toilet.
