Last year, fellow cage-rattlers Jim McCarthy, Damian Bazadona and I, introduced the first ever TEDx Broadway.  We got some great speakers in a room and posed the question, “What’s the best Broadway can be?”

And the answers blew us away.  We heard about Sleep No More’s zero dollar marketing budget, and how our society was knocking on the door of another renaissance.  It was so fascinating that we said, “We have to do this again.”

So we’re doing it.  On January 28th.

This time around we’ve got another set of insightful speakers including Seth Pinsky, President of NYC’s Economic Development Corporation and Thomas Schmacher, President of Disney Theatrical.  We’ve got Terry Teachout, the super-sharp critic from The Wall Street Journal, and Josh Harris, internet pioneer and the subject of the Sundance Award-Winning film, We Live in Public.  Add to that Randi Zuckerberg of Zuckerberg Media and Christine Jones and her theater for one (one performer and one audience member).

And more to come.

It’s a diverse group of thought leaders with one thing in common – an endless imagination that conjures up incredible ideas.

We expect to be blown away again.  And we’re guaranteeing you will too.

You can learn more about TEDx Broadway and the other speakers at, surprise, surprise, www.TEDxBroadway.com.  And purchase tickets at www.goldstar.com/tedxbroadway.  And do get ‘em fast.  We sold a bunch of tickets to this year’s event even prior to today’s speaker announcement, so we expect to sell out.

Come.  You’ll come in with a love for the theater and leave with a LOVE for the theater and what it can and WILL be, when we all work together.

See you there.

One Response to TEDx Broadway is back. And it’s where all the cool speakers are.

    …Continued from previous post.By the Resurrection, not siecnce, we know that the Man Jesus Christ is also God, that His promises are True, and that His Word is inerrant. We know by the direct testimony of this inerrant Word that the Subject of the Bible, is not an attribute of God (like His Sovereignty), but the Man-God Jesus Christ, Who, in His own words, chastising the Pharisees for searching the Scriptures [the Old Testament] in search of knowledge and entirely missing the point, declared of them “These are they which testify of me.” He is the Subject of the Bible; therefore, challenges to the very Word of God, even the Creation account, are attacks against the person of Jesus Christ, against God in the Flesh, and attacks against the Man are attacks against the Message that He brings to us. We expect such attacks from the World. How horrifying it is when such attacks are tolerated among those who simultaneously claim to trust in the promises that Christ brings to us in His Message of Salvation, and it is inexcusable that such individuals would issue these attacks themselves.The question for the Christian isn’t “What does Science say about the first three chapters of Genesis?” Rather, the ultimate question is “Do you really believe in the physical death and bodily Resurrection of Jesus Christ, and trust His promises for your eternal salvation?” for such belief and trust will not permit sacrilige against God or His Word, and imbues the believer with full confidence in what it directly states, leaving him with the very valid and necessary apologetic task of answering worldly challenges to the veracity of the Creation account, along with many many other challenges that the world derives great pleausure in attacking us with, in a way that directs focus away from such rationalistic barriers to salvation, and instead upon the person and work of Jesus Christ and the saving Message of the Gospel which He personally brought to us.My Thoughts,Douglas Lindee
