Fun on a Friday: Techies get all musical on us.

If you thought yesterday’s blog was a little nerdified, wait until you hear about this. Every year, there’s this massive tech festival in Vegas called the Consumer Electronics Show.  This is where gadget freaks get their technical rocks off.  See, CES is where all the e-companies out there debut their latest toys from hover boards to iPacifiers and things you can’t even imagine. It’s like getting a glimpse at the future, no DeLorean required. And this show is huge . . . like bigger than Spider-Man huge.  Over 3,300 booths of gizmos span over 35 football fields of convention floor space.  That’s …

Fun on a Friday: How to tell if you’re a musical nerd.

I’m a Musical Theater nerd.  I’ll admit it. How do I know?  Well it might be because I used to frame every single Playbill . . . and ticket stub . . . and cut out the pictures of the cast from the inside of said Playbill to put with the ticket stub like some sort of Playbillian-nerd collage. I only stopped because I started seeing so many shows per year that I didn’t have space for all those frames in my NYC starter studio apartment. It also might be that I was one of the first posters on rec.arts.theatre.musicals, the …

Fun on a Friday: Bryan Cranston’s new one man show.

Shows about sports are usually hard sells.  When we’ve got females making the majority of the ticket purchasing decision, it’s easy to see why.  As much as I’d want to do Rudy The Musical, I won’t be after the rights anytime soon because my Mom would have no desire to see it (She’s my first focus group on all my shows). Unless, of course . . . Bryan Cranston was in it. Cranston can do anything.  And his Breaking Bad phenom status hasn’t gone anywhere.  Thankfully, his first stop after Walter went off to his final reward in one of the most watched …

Fun on a Friday: For Freshman Only

Calling all ‘shmen! Don’t worry, no hazing happening here.  Just a fun video from Carnegie Mellon’s class of 2017 aimed at all those new BFA students around the country who are probably still shaking in their tap shoes as their first week on campus comes to a close. What I love about this video is that it’s “user generated” content, instead of university generated.  I remember my first year at Tisch, and boy, I would have loved to hear how to survive my first year from students who had just gone through it.  I also remembering telling other people I …

Fun on a Friday: The Book of Mormon visits South Park

When we were doing research for the 2014 Broadway Marketing Awards, we stumbled across the video below and thought, “Genius!  Whatever agency did this is certainly getting a nod.” And then we realized a fan made it. We don’t have a fan-crafted marketing award (but in this day and age, we probably should), so I wanted to give this creator some props.  So, on this summer Friday, enjoy the “Fan-Made” video below . . . “When The Book of Mormon Comes to South Park.” (Email subscribers, if you can’t see the video, click here to watch it.)   (Got a comment? I …
