Can it really be that two long weeks have gone by and nobody picked up on my story that Broadway's Young Frankenstein quietly discontinued its obscene premium ticket pricing until now?
I mean, it's not as if respected newspaper writers avoid reading blogs!
The very capable Campbell Robertson finally reports in yesterday's issue of The New York Times what I wrote about two weeks ago today!
Frankly, this is why it's important to never discount the ability of the dedicated portion of the immense blogosphere to scoop mainstream media.
But two weeks? Wow.
This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).

As someone who has been involved in both politics and public relations, it's no wonder I love watching theatre. Good or bad, it's the raw energy of seeing a live performance that gets my adrenaline pumping. From the moment I saw my very first Broadway show ("Annie" in London in 1979), I was hooked. Now I see as many as 70 shows each year ranging from soaring musicals to two-hander plays. And these eyes just may be in an audience near you!
