My 5 Friday Finds: The Biggest Dramatic Event of the Year is Coming Up.

Here are five things that fancied me this week:

  1. The most dramatic event of the year.

Tuesday, November 6th. Election Day. I don’t care what your politics are. But I do care if you vote. Put it in your calendar now. Book it like a doctor’s appt and you’ll show up. And it might even be more important than a doctor’s appt.

  1. The title makes me laugh.

Big congrats to our client, Leo Schwarz, on his Off-Broadway opening and being one of our #5000By2025 with his show . . . Book of Merman(Told you.) And if you think the title is funny . . . wait until you see this mashup.

  1. Something is happening in the city.

The stock market has been funky. NYC Real estate is down. Broadway grosses are off. I don’t know what’s going on, but there’s some economic weakness. My thought? See #1. Elections always get people jittery. Let’s see what happens this holiday season.

  1. Only 22 Seats Left!

My SuperConference, the only conference of its kind, is dedicated to empowering theatrical art-repreneurs (writers, directors, producers, actors and more) is 8 days away and there’s only a football team’s worth of tickets left. Join me, Itmar Moses, Steven Sater, John Cariani and a whole bunch of movers, shakers and dream makers at this action-oriented weekend. Click here to get one of the last few tickets.

  1. It’s a Jukebox musical on film.

This weekend, Bohemian Rhapsody, the story of Freddie Mercury and Queen, opens in movie theaters around the country. Think we’ll see it adapted for the stage? I know I would have liked a bio concept much better than the Queens-ical We Will Rock You.

Enjoy your weekend!
