Hi All

While we always encourage discussion of things in the news as they relate to theatre, we think this particular topic has run its course and there's not much more anyone can add to the conversation without speculating on someone's beliefs, thoughts, and behaviors in a way that goes beyond what is permitted in our rules.

If there's additional news or statements on this topic, we will re-open the thread. If we miss anything feel free to get in touch to conta


Love the BWW design update!  May 18 2020, 03:30:28 PM

Private messages should be on the top right of the page. If you don't have this icon, can you send me a screenshot to moderator@broadwayworld.com along with your computer/browser info?

Thanks.

Hi all - if you're having a little trouble reading the font you might just have to make the text a little bigger. 

To do that on a Mac just click Command & "+" at the same time on your keyboard.

On windows - it's Control & "+"

On an iPhone, you can follow this handy guide!

DELETE THIS THREAD, PLEASE  Apr 10 2020, 03:12:57 PM

Sharing public statements from those in the theatre world that have suffered from (and hopefully recovered from!) this terrible virus are fine. What to avoid is speculation on those that have not made their health situation public for one reason or another. 



Anyone Having This Problem  Apr 8 2020, 01:11:25 PM

It sounds like this is a problem that is coming from a programmatic banner that is operating outside of the parameters that we set. If/when this happens, please send an email to moderator@broadwayworld.com, and include the URL of the page, and we will block that from appearing in the future. 

It's not a foolproof solution, but the more bad actors we can block, the better. Thank you as always for your help.



Which shows will Covid-19 end?  Apr 7 2020, 12:15:04 PM

These are certainly difficult times for everyone, and we hope that these message boards have provided people an opportunity to connect with others while everyone is dealing with so many scary situations "in the real world." 

We want to thank Matt Doyle for speaking so eloquently about the difficulties that many, many people (not just performers) are dealing with right now. At this point, we firmly believe that anyone and everyone should be doing whatever they ne

Those  are indeed programmatic ads that are targeting you around the net and clearing your cache/cookies often will help reset their targeting.

You can also send us the link to moderator@broadwayworld.com and we can forward to our ad partners to try to block the ads from serving to you on BroadwayWorld at least. 

These problems usually crop up at the beginning of quarters when low quality ads (like the Trump ones) are more likely to slip through Google an


What the hell is with all the pro-trump advertising here?  Apr 2 2020, 07:11:50 AM

BWW Board Book/Watch Party? (Leave your ideas!)  Mar 16 2020, 02:52:57 PM

Hi Everyone,

We know a number of you are likely facing a similar situation to the one we are at the moment - lots of uncertainty and a lot more time at home as we deal with this epidemic and limit our social contact to protect the most vulnerable and our front line healthcare workers.

With that said, we would love to do something to engage with our board community during this time.

We're thinking of maybe a Broadway Bookclub - discussion of a Broadway book on the boar


Malware on this site  Feb 28 2020, 05:03:10 PM

Hi all,

What it sounds like you are experiencing with the bad redirects and pop-up windows is likely from programmatic advertising that we do not have active control over. If that is the case, it is code built into their banners. However, as some people have said, if you send us an email with the URL, we can forward it to our advertising partners who can block those advertisers from appearing on our site. You can send those emails to Sophia Caruso departs Beetlejuice  Feb 22 2020, 01:51:24 PM

We understand the desire to speculate and discuss rumors, especially those that are salacious. However, in most situations, the more explosive of those rumors are just not true, and we do not feel it is appropriate to have that type of conjecture on the site. It is not fair to the individuals and productions involved, because while many of these types of rumors end up being completely false (either in part or whole), they live on the internet forever if they are allowed to, having far-reachin

We are locking this thread due to the unsubstantiated rumors being posted. We will unlock at a time when an official announcement is made by the production and we have further news to share. Thanks. 

Update: As promised, now that an official statement clarifying the situation has been released, we are unlocking this thread.

Hi All

We're going to lock this thread as there aren't any new developments here for the moment and we think the discussion has run its course in terms of what assessments can be made of the situation.

We'll be happy to revisit and unlock if/when further information becomes available.

West Side Story revival?  Dec 9 2019, 09:47:18 AM

There have been a number of posts removed and edited in this thread this morning that violate our rules. While we welcome the discussion of published reports and think that those conversations are important for the community, it is inappropriate to extrapolate those reports to assigning labels to individuals that were not done so by the courts. 

So please feel free to continue to discuss the merits of the situation, but please avoid doing so in ways that confuse the legal facts in


Moderators, we all need clarification from you.  Dec 6 2019, 11:26:13 AM

Good morning all. Our desire is always to delete as little as possible. But when posts violate our guidelines, they are taken down. While we understand that everyone's definition of what is a personal attack, off-topic, etc. varies, we always attempt to give posters the benefit of the doubt until we are shown a reason that we shouldn't.  

While our original intention was only to send PMs when messages were deleted for a reason that might not be obvious or the &qu
