How to put the New York Times critics in your pocket.

Like it or not, reviews matter. And if you’re interested in the business of Broadway (which I gotta assume you are), then knowing what the reviewers say about all the shows on Broadway, not only your own, matters even more.  There’s nothing worse than schmoozing someone over a cocktail and they say, “Did you see those reviews from so-and-so last night,” and you haven’t.  Gulp! That’s why I created DidHeLikeIt.com, which gives you a quick snapshot of whether or not the New York Times (and all other important critics) like a show or not.  And, when you sign up for the …

Made ya look, didn’t it? The dog in the photo on this blog, artistically frozen in mid walk, stands outside the 72nd Street Subway Station, making passerbys (like this producer-blogger) do double takes.  It’s one of my favorite pieces of art that has been dropped onto New York City streets.
