no you know what? i’m back. jason robert brown is allowed to be bitter that none of his shows have played more than 150 performances BECAUSE he has three tony awards. the american theatre wing obviously thought his work was thoughtful, delicate and intelligent enough to warrant three awards, but the general public refuses to acknowledge that by attending his shows.

I think a lot of the blame that he (and you) seem to be placing on “the general public” for not attending his shows rightfully belongs on the shoulders of what I’m terming the Broadway corporate; that is, the producers, the higher-ups, the marketers, the people who decide what is and what isn’t commercially viable on Broadway. 

If you go to popular theater websites, even the NYT theater section, what do you see ads for? Book of Mormon, Wicked, the Disney musicals, the jukebox musicals. There’s a formula for what gets commercially funded and what doesn’t. Broadway is a less forgiving place for JRB’s shows, and the man certainly is talented- I agree with that much, but to put the responsibility on a public that is usually not as informed about the whole spectrum as musical theater as Broadway fans, usually from out of town, and usually inclined to see what has the most word-of-mouth popularity isn’t fair. There’s nothing to “refuse to acknowledge” on the part of the general populace, because the word-of-mouth about JRB’s shows isn’t even making it that far.

Yeah, I mean, JRB is one talented dude, don’t get me wrong, but you can’t blame the general public for not springing for shows that are a) not funded and b) not widely advertised.

There are plenty of theatre fans who are avidly seeking out shows to see, and who are inclined to see shows they haven’t heard much about just because the synopsis sounds interesting or because it’s composed by Jason Robert Brown or Frank Wildhorn, but that’s not the “general public.” It’s actually a pretty damn small percentage of theatre fans (lots of people who enjoy theatre are casual fans who enjoy popular theatre, and there’s nothing wrong with that). Those avidly-seeing-out-shows people are a small percentage of New Yorkers, even, and an incredibly small percentage of Out-Of-Towners (like myself) who visit where his shows are even being performed. Most theatre consumers - and most consumers of anything - are people with limited funds who have to pick and choose what they see and when they see it, because theatre (and most forms of entertainment, for that matter) are expensive.

So to blame the “general public” for not seeing his shows is incredibly unfair. It’s like blaming people downtown for some small, store closing upstate. I mean, I am all about saying that Jason Robert Brown shows are underrated and under-appreciated, but… we need to not blame people who are just uninformed and/or not rolling in cash to spend. There are people to blame. It’s just not the “general public.”
