Wider seats, digital distribution, holograms . . . these were just a few of the answers you came up with for the question, "What will Broadway be like in 20 years?"
You can read them all here . . . but the winner to this week's giveaway, and the guy that's going to Monday's TedX Broadway is . . .
Here was Danny's answer, in case you were curious:
In 20 years, it will be the norm for Broadway shows to release a video recording of the show in the way that it is now the norm for a musical to release a cast album. It would be recorded with the original cast but not released until after closing night, so as not to compete with ticket sales. It would be an easy way for producers to continue making money on the property after the show has closed, and a way to preserve amazing performances forever. (And make them accessible to anyone anywhere, unlike the Lincoln Center archives.)
(It was the comparison to the cast recording that I loved about this answer. I mean, do you think people argued against releasing cast albums years ago?)
Congratulations, Danny! Email me and we'll set up your ticket. We'll see you on Monday.
If you're interested in hearing more of what Broadway will be like in 20 years, then come to TedX Broadway. There are a few tickets still available, and it's going to be awesome.
See you there.
