Presenters of the Golden Globe Awards receive a giftbag worth $56,000 of goodies. Included are tickets to WOMAN IN WHITE.

Just FYI.
"The Spectacle has, indeed, an emotional attraction of its own, but, of all the parts, it is the least artistic, and connected least with the art of poetry. For the power of Tragedy, we may be sure, is felt even apart from representation and actors. Besides, the production of spectacular effects depends more on the art of the stage machinist than on that of the poet."
--Aristotle

$56,000 just for reading an autocue?
Nothing precious, plain to see, don't make a fuss over me. Not loud, not soft, but somewhere inbetween. Say sorry, just let it be the word you mean.

Dang. I can't believe they get that much for just reading a teleprompter.

yes, well, I can't believe athletes get paid as much as they do for slamming somebody into the ground. That's just the way the world works

But that's a diffent topic. re: Golden Globes Giftbag Includes WOMAN IN WHITE Tickets

I may be wrong, but I would think that different organizations can choose to donate things for the gift baskets. If that were true, it would mean that the show chose to be a part of the gifts. It makes more sense for The Woman in White to do that than a more popular show because they aren't selling out anyway, so they aren't losing much money by giving away some tickets. If anything it'll help get the word out about the show.

ETA: If there happen to be any Golden Globe presenters or nominees on this message board who do not want their Woman in White tickets, feel free to pass them on to me. re: Golden Globes Giftbag Includes WOMAN IN WHITE Tickets

E! actually always advertises for the show. E! is a big sponser of the Globes and they do the Red Carpet show, so that could be a reason.

They're giving WIW tickets because there are fewer and fewer people every week who are willing to actually PAY for them. re: Golden Globes Giftbag Includes WOMAN IN WHITE Tickets

Is that the only way they can get people to go see that show?

Also, probably if a prominent celeb gets their hands on the tickets and actually sees the show, that could get the word out...people tend to follow what the celebs think.

I haven't seen "Match Point," but apparently the London version of "The Woman in White" played some part in the plot of the movie. Since "Match Point" was nominated for at least one Golden Globe award, perhaps that is part of the reason WIW tickets were included in the gift bags.

in the movie they go see WIW in London and you can see the theater, and numerous sound clips from the show. It's not particularly obvious and striking and, isn't a huge ploy to boost ticket sales, but it is a form of publicity none-the-less so I'll take it!
