Carla De La Rosa's insight:

The original movies of today where the original broadway shows of yesterday. the love of the theatre has always been a big part of our lives, but the broadway of today is having a sight decline in originality but nontheless creativity still flows in the minds of the show producers of today and tomorrow.

Carla De La Rosa's insight:

Broadway: The Pro's & Con's

Con's: Movies are taking over broadway, so the Originality factor that it (broadway) was once known for has declined immensly in the past few years. The revenue being brought in by original broadway productions has become less than the expenses applied into it.

 

Pro's: A movie and a broadway play will not be the same in all aspects, but the creators/producers of that particular production will be similar. If you go to a broadway show and love it, you will try to give another show a chance that has been produced by the same person(s). 'the book of mormo is an example of that. the creators are the same people who created the iconic 'South Park'; If you enjoy(ed) watching 'South Park' then theres a chance that you will trust the broadway production that the creator have put out

Carla De La Rosa's insight:

Production of broadway shows takes alot of time and money, including the time and talents of the actors themselves. the times are changing. with the incline of new technology, their is bound to be a decline somewhere; Theatre has taken a hit in that downward slope.

So you finally got your gigs booked? Hate to break it you, but you still have a long road ahead of you. Now the hard part comes...you have to get people to show up! But don’t sweat it.
Carla De La Rosa's insight:

Like Broadway, Concerts of many kinds, attract a wide array of people. when you go see your favorite band, the last thing your thinking about is what went on before the show; was the sound check perfected? Is the lighting in the right order? are all the wires perfectly connected to everything? nope! not unless your a Show Producer. Production of live events and shows make things exciting, it gives your audience a life ouside of technology; real-life socialization.

Carla De La Rosa's insight:

Technology has taken over our lives, but even so, real-life acting/role-playing is something that will never die. have you ever seen a movie and just wanted more of it; theatre does that. the actors make you feel as if those characters you saw, either recently in movie theatres or home on VHS, are more alive; real. this 1-man tribute is a prime example of a love for real life art that was once just a childrens cartoon movie.
