My 5 Friday Finds: The Biggest Dramatic Event of the Year is Coming Up.
Here are five things that fancied me this week:
- The most dramatic event of the year.
Tuesday, November 6th. Election Day. I don’t care what your politics are. But I do care if you vote. Put it in your calendar now. Book it like a doctor’s appt and you’ll show up. And it might even be more important than a doctor’s appt.
- The title makes me laugh.
Big congrats to our client, Leo Schwarz, on his Off-Broadway opening and being one of our #5000By2025 with his show . . . Book of Merman. (Told you.) And if you think the title is funny . . . wait until you see this mashup.
- Something is happening in the city.
The stock market has been funky. NYC Real estate is down. Broadway grosses are off. I don’t know what’s going on, but there’s some economic weakness. My thought? See #1. Elections always get people jittery. Let’s see what happens this holiday season.
- Only 22 Seats Left!
My SuperConference, the only conference of its kind, is dedicated to empowering theatrical art-repreneurs (writers, directors, producers, actors and more) is 8 days away and there’s only a football team’s worth of tickets left. Join me, Itmar Moses, Steven Sater, John Cariani and a whole bunch of movers, shakers and dream makers at this action-oriented weekend. Click here to get one of the last few tickets.
- It’s a Jukebox musical on film.
This weekend, Bohemian Rhapsody, the story of Freddie Mercury and Queen, opens in movie theaters around the country. Think we’ll see it adapted for the stage? I know I would have liked a bio concept much better than the Queens-ical We Will Rock You.
Enjoy your weekend!
