What You’re Telling Us:
“I know as well as any other person that’s seen a show from that close up that live music IS Broadway. The music fills the theatre, something a recording could never do.” – Katie
“I’m saving up for a flight to New York for the sole purpose of seeing a show… I hope we can save live music on Broadway so when I finally see my first show there I’m not disappointed” – Jonathan
“Live music in any show is important, whether it be in Broadway theater, a cafe, a small recital space, or in Carnegie Hall. The passion of the musicians is manifested in their music and we, as audience members, receive it. That is the ultimate gift, for an artist to share what they do and move people with their work. Canned music in our theatrical productions would kill that passion; extinguishing that spark that makes us all thrive.” – Anna
