Shall we play a game? The ‘Be A Broadway Star’ Board Game, that is!

I’ve always loved board games.

I’ve always loved Broadway.

So . . . using the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup theory (putting two things together that are fantastic on their own with the hopes of creating something even more fantastic), I created a Broadway Board Game called . . . wait for it . . . Be A Broadway Star!

Yep, forget X-Box and iPhone apps, we took it old school.

Inspired by the classic games of everybody’s youth–Life, Monopoly, Encore, Charades, and more–I’m proud to announce that today we are officially releasing a brand new board game where you play the role of a Broadway Star-to-Be!

Fun, right?  Well, wait until you play!

Just like the life of a real wannabe Broadway actor, you’ll roll the dice and go through acting school, buy pictures and resumes, try and get an agent, and of course, audition, audition, and audition some more!

You’ll even get “make or break” moments that challenge your best Broadway skills!

The player that gets to the Broadway Hall of Fame first, and has the most fans, wins!

It’s interactive, it’s Broadway and from what our focus group players said, it’s a heck of a lot of fun!!!

And it goes without saying that we think it’s a must for anyone on your holiday list this year that has ever even uttered the word Broadway.

Buy it online at BeABroadwayStar.com.

The game will be in stores soon, but as with everything I do, I wanted my blog readers to be the first to get it . . . especially since there are only a limited number of games available.  As you can imagine, developing and building a game is quite a process, so we ordered a very small quantity for this first batch. Because the holiday season is approaching, we do expect to sell out fast.  So snatch ’em up.

(Oh, and after you get it, we’ll be having a contest to see who can come up with the best “drinking game” version . . . so start thinking).

Special thanks to Travis Ferguson, Melissa Heller, Blair Ingenthron, Rick Menard, and my entire DTE team for putting in the extra effort to make this happen.  You should have seen their faces the day I came into the office and said, “I wanna make a Broadway Board Game!”  Thanks for helping to make another Davenport dream come true, guys and dolls.

We’re having a Tony Party and you’re invited!

Tony night is my favorite holiday of the year.  Yep, that’s right, for me (and I’m sure for you, too) it qualifies as a holiday.

It’s better than New Year’s, better than Thanksgiving . . . and hey, if you’re a nominee, it can be better than Christmas!

Well, what better way to spend the holidays than with friends and family. So, we’re throwing a Tony Party and all of you are invited!

BroadwaySpace.com is sponsoring the bash which will take place at my favorite wing place in the city:  Blondies on the Upper West Side.  They’ve got super wings, and super-sized TVs all over the place, so you’ll be able to get a great view from any angle.

And, this is the coolest part . . . we’ve got two super-awesome hosts who will be giving you their running commentary on the festivities all night long . . . Current Hair stars, Annaleigh Ashford and Kyle Riabko!  (And I hear they are working up some pretty cool surprises, including a song or two, to keep you entertained during commercial breaks).

In addition, here are a few more things we have planned for the Big Night:

  • A Tony Pool with a BIG prize!
  • Raffles and contests for cool prizes including free tickets to shows like A Little Night Music, Million Dollar Quartet, Lend Me a Tenor and more!
  • Surprise special guests
  • Broadway Karaoke after the awards
  • A “Quiet Room” with its own large screen TV for those that want a more private viewing
  • And more!

But the best part of the night is going to be spending it surrounded by other folks who are as passionate about the theater and Broadway as all of you.  If you’ve been to one of my socials, imagine that . . . times 100.

There is a food and beverage charge of $25, if you reserve your wings in advance. You’ll get unlimited wings, moz sticks, chicken tenders, fries and veggies, as well as unlimited sodas.  There will be a cash bar . . . and I hear the bartenders at Blondies are already working up a $5 specialty drink called the Tony-Tini!  At the door, you’ll pay $30, so reserve in advance.

The room can only accommodate a limited number of people so reserve now, and you won’t end up wondering on June 13th, “What am I gonna do tonight?”

It’s gonna be a blast.  I can’t wait.  In fact, if I can’t be at Radio City up for an award, then this is the only other place I want to be.

See you there!
