So when is this going to be hitting the stage? I see this as more evidence of theater imitating larger popular culture, and I think it's great.I was able to get the Book of Mormon tickets this summer and I loved it. As I saw it, the social commentary was no worse than what you'd see on TV, but it was FUNNY, and the songs were catchy.I got some other tickets for Broadway shows like "Avenue Q" and "Warhorse", and loved them too. A trip to New York every now and again is good for the soul!
If you liked this, you should definitely check out my interview with 2 of the guys behind these videos here: http://emergingmt.blogspot.com/2011/01/online-musical-interview-with-jeff.html. They do a ton of pop culture and audience participation-related projects, but they also talk in the article about how musical projects made for online audiences can translate to the stage.
I love audience participation shows. I used to go to Rocky Horror shows once a month or so. It's a shame there's not more of that going on right now. Spiderman doesn't count.There's a lot of good stuff on Broadway right now. I found some discount How to Succeed in Business tickets and I enjoyed it very much.
