It's 12:38 AM as I type. We're 38 minutes into Black Friday, and I know a bunch of people at brick and mortar stores right this very second. In the middle of dessert at the Thanksgiving dinner I attended, one of the diners disappeared. "Where's so-and-so?"
Three people responded so quickly and so in unison, they could have been the Shirelles from last season's Baby It's You.
"Best Buy," they chorded.
That spark plugged a convo about $200 sixty inch TVs, a rare iPad discount, and lots of other BF deals stores are offering starting tomorrow today.
Now, last year I spent a blog talking about my ideas for how Broadway could be more of a part of this major shopping day (and it's sister shopping day – Cyber Monday), which you can read here.
This message isn't about that . . . it's simple call to all the theater folks out there that are shopping tomorrow today for their loved ones.
Buy 'em theater tickets.
Pick something for them, of course . . . whether that's a subscription to MTC or your local touring house, or tickets to Jersey Boys, a Telecharge gift card, or even something you hate but you know they'd love.
But buy 'em theater tickets.
Because seeing something live beats seeing something on a TV any day of the week . . . I don't care how big it is.
