Thanks to Tom Ray of Woodbridge, VA.

This week’s Entertainment Weekly rag, uh, sorry, I mean mag, had the following letter to the editor:

More theater reviews, please!  I enjoyed this issue but I want – need – more!

– Tom Ray, Woodbridge, VA

Thanks for speaking out, Tom. And thanks for reminding a major media outlet that there are Broadway theater lovers all over the country who are looking for more theater representation in what they read.

With the numbers of mega-stars stepping their star-studded shoes on Broadway stages these days (Jude Law, Hugh Jackman, Daniel Craig, Scarlett Johannson, Will Ferrell, etc.), we have a chance to break into more mainstream publications.

Let’s hope EW and everyone else listens to folks like Tom . . . and folks like you.

In fact, why don’t we show Tom some support?

Write to Entertainment Weekly at ew_letters@ew.com or snail mail ’em at Entertainment Weekly, 135 West 50th St., New York, NY  10020.

Tell ’em you want more theater.

I’m serious.  Click it.  Tell ’em you agree with Tom.

It’ll take 30 seconds tops.

And tell ’em Ken sent you.  🙂

Oh, and Tom, if you read this, drop me a note. I tried to look you up in the 2009 version of the phone book (aka facebook) but came up empty.  I’d love for you to be my guest at one of my shows the next time you are in town.  We need more and more folks like you.

    I have long maintained a love/hate
    relationship with Entertainment Weekly and I was happy to have the
    opportunity (again) to tell them how I feel. This time, hopefully, as
    part of a large, loud mob.
    I hope the phrase “Ken sent me” will instill a healthy fear in them.

    Awesome Ken! I’m a big fan of your blog. I just checked out their website too and EW doesn’t have any theatre in their page drop down menus. I sent them an email.

    The very reason I dropped EW and picked up TimeOutNewYork! TONY doesn’t usually get to Virginia until the Saturday of that week’s issue, but it’s still worth it.
    I really enjoy your blog. Thank you for writing it.
