Today Tix is a website and application based theatre ticket company. Basically you can get last minute tickets for shows at discount prices in a variety of cities including: New York, London, Los Angeles, Chicago, and more.
They have made it streamlined and user friendly. The options are usually listed for shows up to a 30 days in advance.
It elimiates the need to run to the box office, or TKTS. Especially convenient if you are out of town and traveling into town.
Another example of technology moving things forward, this time for us theatre nerds.
Had the fortunate opportunity in my life to live in NYC. While there the New York Times is arguably the only way true new yorkers get their news.
What I’m excited about is The New York Times really is a global leader in news. As much as we have been hearing attacks towards the news media, they really are the pillar of freedom and the First Amendment to the Constitution.
Ok. So Vegas can be tough. Watching all that money go away time and time again. Thinking your next bet will be the big win you for which you have been dreaming.
This Blackjack app allows you to play and bet big without the cash loss, or the dream dying.
Be careful, it’s addictive…perhaps intentionally.
However, for the novice or seasoned players it offers a lot of fun. It also gives the players a chance to learn and try doubling, splitting, and the ever-so-risky bet of “all in”.
It’s also free.
There are ways you can plus up your experience by paying money for add ons, or other location Blackjack tables (this initial casino is based in London). Other casino options include: Macau, Monacco, Paris, and Las Vegas.
Completely obsessed with the podcast Broadway Backstory. This podcast was recommended to me by my friend Laura (thank you Laura!). In season one, tales of 7 Broadway shows are told from idea to creation. With interviews of key players (Directors, Producers, Composers, Actors, etc.) Each podcast is dedicated to one shows story.
Patrick Hinds hosts this addictive series. The shows included in season one are: In the Heights, Fun Home, Deaf West’ Spring Awakening, Legally Blonde, The Secret Garden, Next to Normal, and The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.
The podcast pull back the curtain on what it takes to produce shows on Broadway, the years of dedication, setbacks, and triumphs.
TED Ed is a new addition to the TED concept. They are educational videos usually no longer than 5 minutes. They ask a question and then proceed to answer it in a short amount of time. Just enough to listen, learn from, and move on in our busy and hectic lives.
I’ve already learned about topics that surprised me. Unexpected lessons: “Why do we feel nostalgia?”, “Why are we so attached to our things?”.
Take a look, you’ll be sure to learn something new.
