Ahwatukee Foothills resident Patricia Bush and 11 other Broadway theater lovers have been selected to become part of the annual Arizona State University Gammage Goers program for the 2010/11 aeason.
The 12 Valley reviewers will have an opportunity to review shows throughout the blockbuster Broadway season. The Goers were chosen from a pool of more than 250 applicants who completed a comprehensive survey of their interests and background and desire to review Broadway shows at ASU Gammage.
"We were looking for a way to better engage the patrons at ASU Gammage. The way people receive information and make entertainment buying decisions has changed," says Michael Porto, ASU Gammage Director of Marketing & Communications who conceived the program. "This program was a huge success last year as it gave Gammage patrons a chance to see what educated-theater goers thought of the shows first. We were overwhelmingly happy with the turn out, having more than 6,000 people visit the Goer section of our website," he added.
Gammage Goers will create video reviews at MyStudio in Arizona Mills Mall that will be posted on the ASU Gammage website by Thursday during a run of a show. Each Goer will review approximately three shows per Gammage season.
