1,000th Blog!: Thank you!


Well, two and half years ago, when I started this blog, I was really doing it mostly for me as an outlet to write about theater.  And in the beginning, it really was mostly me - I'd get 5 or 6 hits a day, and I admit it was a thrill.  It is hard to imagine that now, most days, I get 1,000 or more!

My favorite pictorial subject:
Charlie Williams!

During our time together, I've learned what works and what doesn't.  And I've learned that I have two groups of readers, though I am certain there is overlap.  There is the group that reads anything and everything to do with Broadway Boys and Ladies (including Broadway Bares, and the ridiculous, but popular "HOT/HOTTER" tournament.  The other group seems to be the more studious theater-goer, who reads my reviews, my history pieces and my analysis of show art, logos and commercials.  I'm glad to be able to appeal to and satisfy such a wide range of theater fan!

My favorite show:
next to normal

I probably would keep doing this even if it was only for me because I love the outlet.  But it sure is nice to share it with you.

Over the last 1,000 blogs, I've met and worked with a lot of people.  And I'd like to thank you!

  • My fellow bloggers and Twitter friends: Esther, Tyler, Jonathan, Chris, and dozens more who stay in contact on and off!
  • My Broadway friends who have been so gracious with their time, thoughts and photos: Kristin Chenoweth, Curtis Holbrook, Betty Buckley, Jeff Calhoun, Alex Wyse, Teddy Toye, Josh Segarra, Lindsay Nicole Chapman,  and others.
  • The folks at Broadway Records and Applause Books who send me stuff to review and share with you.
  • Everyone at Serino Coyne and MCC Theatre for their generosity in ticket giveaways for you!
  • All of you (including several anonymous parents of Broadway babies) who email me and share your opinions, thoughts and thanks.
  • And to the Broadway companies of next to normal and Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark for giving me the most to write about these past 1,000 days (with 58 and 80 blogs each, respectively).
  • And, finally, to my best theatre loving friend and editor (and frequent contributor), Mike.  I couldn't have done this without your help, support, and honesty.

My most written on subject:
Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark

I am now going to celebrate this achievement, by going down south to see Mike and take in Xanadu at Signature Theatre in Virginia!

Best regards to all of you!

P.S.: Please be sure to make your nominations for the 2nd Annual JKTS Awards!  Ballot 2 closes tonight at 8PM, and the final ballot goes live tomorrow at 9AM!

P.P.S.:  I leave you with a fun video made by the London Cast of Ghost The Musical.  Enjoy those abs!
