And tonight, we’re joined by Tony nominee and not-so Mean Girl, Ashley Park (Mean Girls, Grand Horizons, Sunday In The Park With George, KPOP).

Tonight on the Livestream: Queen of Comedy, Julie Halston

I had a blast chatting with Rob McClure last night! Despite Broadway shutting down just days into previews for Mrs. Doubtfire, Rob is looking ahead and making the most of this time . . . he’s writing, he’s creating Conductor Cam videos (watch ’em here), he’s watching his daughter grow up!

And we get to keep laughing with tonight’s guest, Julie Halston (Tootsie, On The Town, Gypsy, Hairspray) How is Julie keeping herself busy these days? Tune at 8pm EDT tonight to find out! (Click here to get an e-reminder!).

Cuomo had a big marketing problem. Guess who he asked for help?

The Governor of NY wants his citizens to wear masks.

And he ran out of ways to get people to do it.

That, my friends, is a marketing problem.  He’s trying to sell something.  And not enough people are buying.

So, he hired a big fancy ad agency to come up with a TV ad to get people to wear masks, right?

Wrong!

He didn’t hire anybody.  Instead, to solve one of the most important marketing dilemmas of all time, he asked his daughter for help.

And she came up with the idea for a “Make Your Own Mask Commercial” contest.

Here’s how it works:

You make a video telling NYers why they should wear a mask.   You upload it to a website.  They pick five finalists.  NYers vote for their favorites.  The top vote-getter has their video turned into a PSA commercial that runs on the air.  (And probably launches the career of a filmmaker.)

(You can learn more about the contest, including how to submit, here.)

Amazing, right?  Sounds like our Social Distancing Festival.

What I love about this idea is that it didn’t come from the Communications Director for the State of NY.  No.  When faced with a crisis, on pandemic proportions or even if you’re just producing a play, you don’t just ask the experts . . . you ask everyone!

The best ideas win, and just like in this case, the winners often come from the “audience” themselves, not just from people paid to think like an audience.

 

Oh, and also . . . please wear a mask.

And then submit a video about it!

 

Tonight on the Livestream: One of the funniest men on Broadway, Rob McClure

We’ve had quite a few stellar streams over the past few days!

And last night, I got a lesson in Twitch from none other than Jordan Freakin’ Fisher!

Before last night, I never spoken more than a few words to Jordan Fisher.  But leave it to a pandemic to bring people together.

And despite our twenty year age difference, we bonded over . . . VIDEO GAMES!  🙂

Jordan told me all about the streamin’ community that he plays a big “part” in, and how be believes todays video game generation will make theater tomorrow.

To catch the replay and learn what ultimate role he hopes to tackle in 20 years, click here.

And tonight, I’m super excited to spend #ShowShirtWednesday with another leading man and comedic genius. . . Rob McClure (Mrs. Doubtfire, Beetlejuice, Honeymoon In Vegas)! How is Rob keeping himself entertained these days? Tune at 8pm EDT tonight to find out! (Click here to get an e-reminder!).

Thank you to Kerry Butler for joining us on the livestream last night. It was great to catch up with Kerry and learn what she’s been getting up to – including teaching acting and watercolor classes!
