New York, NY (PRWEB) June 20, 2013
BroadwayAudience.com will offer theatre fans a centralized online space that puts the audience in the critic’s seats, providing an opportunity to converge, confer and create real word of mouth in the only quantitative structure available for peer-to-peer theatre reviews online, it was announced today. BroadwayAudience.com is a central forum for word of mouth to reflect what the audiences are saying and to provide fan suggestions for all shows based on clear criteria using a proprietary algorithm.
BroadwayAudience.com is a “daily drop in” for social conversations and a place for relationships to develop between audience members as well as to see original content created just for the viewers and to extend onto Facebook and Twitter in the supportive, theatre-loving community. Friends of the site are producers, actors, photographers and others working in the theatre who want to give the power to the fans to develop the word of mouth around great shows.
Fans will post their overall review of the show and will rate the performers, the set/design, the music and choreography. They will also identify their own background to see how they match against who they are “speaking” to – moms like to listen to moms, Seniors may appreciate hearing from theatre-goers in their own age range. A proprietary algorithm will match demographic data to help narrow searches for shows that fans might want to see against the growing database of fan reviews for customized recommendations. The interactive chat room allows fans to connect in real time and to extend their relationships into an active conversation. Active fans will earn badges for multiple posts.
BroadwayAudience.com creator and Broadway Producer (2013 Tony Award winner for Best Revival Of A Musical for Pippin, 2012 Tony Award Winner for Best Revival of A Musical for Gershwin’s Porgy & Bess) Ken Mahoney said, “BroadwayAudience.com evolved out of watching crowds cheering for fantastic shows that for one reason or another did not find their fan base and momentum and couldn’t stay open despite the positive fan response. After speaking to many associates and theatre fans, we decided to create a fun, informative, interactive unified space for fans to meet and provide their quantitative reviews for other fans and create organic word of mouth. Imagine the power of the people keeping a show up and running through great authentic audience buzz.”
The site’s mission is to create the ultimate social fan site for the Broadway Audience where they gather and make a difference for the shows and the theatre lovers.
