The Facebook Effect

There are probably lots of Facebook effects, but the one that I have noticed recently is that I am finding out the results of casting for shows from people's status updates and Wall-to-Wall conversations.

Sometimes this happens before all of the phone calls have gone out.

I don't yet know how community theater will change to adapt to this, but it will be interesting to watch it happen.

Funny you should mention this. I just had my first experience of this last week - I learned who got the title role in The Merry Widow from the successful soprano's status entry. So far, that's the only instance I've seen, but the spring musicals are just beginning auditions...
