Woody Allen And A Strange Twist Over Broadway

Don’t forget, there is always more strangeness to be had…

The Wrap asks a fair question, given the talk around town: Will the Woody Allen Scandal Torpedo ‘Bullets Over Broadway: The Musical’?

I don’t know what has happened, or what will happen, in the portion of the universe that Woody Allen occupies. I’m going to be really honest about what I do know- he’s not my favourite filmmaker. So many people raved on how much I would looooooove Midnight In Paris, for example. I admit, it’s as close to loving a Woody Allen film as I’ve ever gotten (Come on- Set in Paris? Corey Stoll as Hemingway?! Tom Hiddleston as F. SCOTT FITZGERALD?!!!!1 Ahem.) But I didn’t love it nearly as much as the chorus of recommenders thought I would. But this?

Yes, please. More.

And that’s all I know for sure.

But, randomly (and the real point of this blog post), I noticed the article included this related link: Broadway Audience White, Middle Aged and Female, Study Finds and I went all WHAAAAAAAA?

If you read the entire article (and I recommend that you do), it basically states the Broadway audience is in their 40s and female. My question is what, exactly, is the “Broadway Audience”? There’s a pretty heavy divide between musical theatregoers and those who see plays, for example. And using selective surveys at 34 productions that only amounts to a cross-section that includes 5,000 or so voluntary respondents? How accurate is this data, really?

Considering it’s taken from 11.58 million attendees who saw a Broadway show last year… Ummm…

I like to think everyone sees live theatre as often as they can. It can be tough, based on where you live and what your life involves, but I know you want to.

And admission is always the first step on the right path.
