Over at the NY Innovative Theatre Awards website, they're conducting a survey that I think would be a fantastic addition to conversation about producing Off-Off Broadway in New York City. Of course, participation would be key.
If you're a producer, I encourage you to do so here.
I'd love to see an annual release of these figures.
One reason, of course, is to have a conversation based on facts (or at least some version of the facts) that moves above and beyond the anecdotal and philosophical discussions that permeate Off-Off Brodaway.
Moreover, this sort of thing sparks not only discussion, but interest. Box Office, Television Ratings; these things have their own sort of fans. Off-Off Broadway could certainly benefit from some measure of data that could create these sort of interested eyes.
Again, the survey is here.
