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 board, a collective watch party where we pick something to watch together and post our thoughts, opinions, humorous puns, whatever you're feeling at the moment, etc. We'll take a look at all your ideas today and come back with the "OFFICIAL Quarantine Watch Party/Book Club" thread.But also feel free to start your own threads if you'd like to read/watch/discuss something with the BWW community.You can also contribute ideas or thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org.Best to all our members, and stay healthy!-Team BWW
I'd be interested! Razzle Dazzle by Michael Riedel is next up on my reading list, so if there were a "book club" related to that, I wouldn't be mad :)

I don't pun unless it's humorous.
Love this idea! I totally vote for a SMASH rewatch. Anyone else have Broadway HD? Hoping they'll expand their library in light of current events
Learn the words[and actions] to Adelaides' Lament---that will clear the room.

Not sure, but it has been awhile. I really enjoyed it, but was surprised about the number of factual errors (can't remember one right this minute). Would be interesting to have a second subject just focusing blatant errors in an otherwise enjoyable read.
