Is it me or is there a lot more theater on TV? And at movie theaters? And other non traditional venues which is all a really good thing.

On Monday (Nov. 28) we had #TheaterOnTV with “Buried Child” as part of the #PBSTheater Close-Up series.

Tonight at 9 on Channel 13 is an encore performance of “The Nance” with the amazing #NathanLane as a closeted gay burlesque comic. (repeats on Channel 13  at 1:30 a.m. Dec. 6, plus streaming live on various PBS stations ).

Next week, Dec. 7, we get #HairsprayLive with major theater folks #KristinChenoweth#HarveyFierstein #JenniferHudson and civilians with talent.

This is a good thing! So watch them all so ratings go up and TV network executives decide to air more. Use all the social media you can as well.
