The “Tweet Seat” debate featured on Rock Center with Brian Williams.
I’ll admit . . . sometimes when I do something new, I know it’s going to miff a few folks. But boy, I had no idea that our tweet seat experiment at Godspell would attract so much attention.
Well, the buzz was so loud about this subject, that we actually attracted the super cool Brian Williams and his Rock Center crew, who did a whole story on cellphones and Broadway . . . and yes our tweet seat experiment. I’ve posted it for you below.
By the way . . . our tweet seat experiment was a big success. How do I measure success? Our #1 concern was making sure that not an audience member nor a performer was bothered by the tweeters. And, after the show, I personally polled about 20 non-tweeters . . . and not one of them even knew we were having a tweet seat event. And the cast gave their tweeting thumbs up as well.
How else did I measure success? About half way through the Godspell portion, I talk about some age demographics. My answer is how I knew we did some good.

So much has changed in our industry . . ….
I get it. No one likes to select a seat…
