Words for the Ways We Experience Live Theatre!

medium.com — After reading Steve Johnson's column in the Chicago Tribute titled " New TV terminology for the big-screeners and the stealth-bombers out there," I couldn't help but apply this methodology to live theater-going habits.

Following a Broadway Show’s Demise on Twitter

simsscoop.com — As the official Twitter account for The Performers has strong social media activity and has built up a small but avid fan base, I thought it interesting to take a look at the Twitter timeline starting on opening night and ending with the news of closing hitting the internet.
