Ken Davenport of The Producer's Perspective Hosts Theatre Bloggers Meet Up

I've RSVPed for this, despite not being from New York - if they find a way to link in the rest of us through the wonders of online technology, I'm excited to be a part of the wider discussion about theatre & the role of theatre blogs.

Here's the info from Ken's blog: click on over there to RSVP yourselves.

1ST THEATER BLOGGERS SOCIAL
Thursday, April 23rd. 6 PM - 8 PMPlanet HollywoodBroadway at 45th St.
To RSVP, comment to this blog with your name and the URL of your blog. Confirmation and final details will be emailed to you. Oh, and to qualify as a "Theater Blogger", you should:
Have a blog devoted primarily to theater
Post regularly
Be an independent blogger (not sponsored/paid to blog by any organization)
If that's you, then come on down to Planet Hollywood on the 23rd and meet others who do what you do. Share some appetizers. Swap some links. Find guest columnists. Argue about whether discounts are eroding our sales or not.
Maybe we'll agree, maybe we won't. But at least we'll have the conversation. And when we're all in one room, the volume of that conversation will be loud enough that people will have to listen.
Who knows, maybe it will be the first meeting of this.
If you're an out-of-town theater blogger, RSVP as well. We're working on a way to e-hook you in.
And if you don't have a blog? Start one. And you can come to the next event.

I love it! This would be so much fun!
We could do something like this in Vancouver, but it would just be you and me and Trilby having drinks at the Backstage. Again.
No, seriously, the list of Vancouver bloggers is growing--we should have a Tweetup!

Sabrina and I were talking about it and we want to arrange for a Vancouver Theatre Tweetup when I get back from my vacation. The list is really growing. We'd potentially have you, Trilby, Simon, Sabrina, Ryan Mooney, any of the theatre companies who want to come, Marijka, Andrew McNee, Chris Walts, myself, and anyone else who'd show up.

The list is getting longer.
