Don't they just annoy you?? I mean, every time I go to sweeneytoddonbroadway.com, the videos section is still unclickable, and they never have current cast photos on avenueq.com.

You have to realize though...that probably is their last concern. The majority of the people who go to the websites are either people who have already seen the show or people like us who will definitely see it.

Wicked is rarely updated. Several months into Ben Vereen's run, they had pictures of George Hearn up.

Ewww, this is my pet peeve too. Especially with actors who set up nice sites and then NEVER update them. I have a feeling they get friends to set up the sites and then just kinda forget about it. I wrote Brian Stokes Mitchell and offered to be his web master, but he never wrote back. Of course, he never wrote back when I offered to be his slave (non-web) either. re: Broadway show web sites that rarely get updated... KIDDING!

Web trivia: Chuck Wagner has a nice message board and will answer questions that fans post. Brent Barrett will answer your email.
"Do you know ChrisLovesShows?" "Yes. Why, yes he does!"

I actually think that Wicked has one of the best websites,
Now Chicago's is never updated, and somebody, please update Charlotte d'Amboise's bio, it has been the same for the last 9 times she has been in Chicago!


"Charlotte d'Amboise (Roxie Hart) is thrilled to be rejoining the Broadway company of CHICAGO as Roxie Hart, a role that earned her rave New York Reviews and the L.A. Drama Critics Circle Award, the L.A. Ovation Award and the Bay Area Theatre Critics Circle Award for the national tour. She has also just finished the Encores! production of Can-Can. Prior Broadway credits include: the Wife in Contact Lola in Damn Yankees (Fred Astaire Award), Jerome Robbins' Broadway (Tony nomination), Company (at the Roundabout)(Fred Astaire Award), Jerome Robbins' Broadway (Tony nomination), Company (at the Roundabout), Carrie, Song & Danceand Cats. Off-Broadway: The Dolphin Position, The Tennis Game, Red Eye, Prairie Avenue and Non-Pasquale. Regional: Speed the Plowat the Actors Theatre of Louisville, Italian American Reconciliation, On the Town at the Goodspeed Opera House. Film: The Preacher's Wife, The In Crowd and American Blue Note. TV: "Neon Jungle," "Beyond the Bermuda Triangle." One of her proudest moments was performing at the Kennedy Center Honors, for her father."

In My Life's website still says: "We're Open!" I find that humorous

"Chicago" is another site that bugs the crap out of me, especially the bio of Kander and Ebb which doesn't even mention Fred Ebb's untimely death.

"You have to realize though...that probably is their last concern. The majority of the people who go to the websites are either people who have already seen the show or people like us who will definitely see it."

It should not be this way though, the internet is a major marketing tool for movies and all kinds of products. With a little more thought and some well made sites the shows could get considerable support from the web. If they added site liks and specific, interesting content to the advertizing it could be a major boom.

Sondheim.com is the "theater related" site that gets to me, it still says "ASSASSINS may be coming to broadway!"
I stand corrected, you are as vapid as they say.
