BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!
Welcome welcome welcome to the 3rd year of Broadway Hunger Games! Broadway has become altogether too cushy. Equity minimum is going up, they’re fighting for their rights, shows are staying open, free La Duca shoes! It’s all just too much for us to handle. Here at the Capitol (BroadwaySpotted.com ) we have decided in order to punish the Districts for their impertinence we will take one male or one female tribute from each District to compete in the Hunger Games. The games will last for the entire month of April and some of May, one week for choosing tributes and four weeks for BATTLES!!
How will this take place? Well, I’m glad you asked. There will obviously be rules, as we are the Capitol and we’re all about rules. There will be tributes and sponsors and votes and it’s going be a lot of fun. And a blood bath (But don’t worry, Equity, no actors will be harmed in the making of this game. Julie Taymor is NOT the gamemaker).
We are currently in week 1 of the Broadway Hunger Games and are in need of tributes! How will they be chosen, you might be asking. YOU will choose. By casting a vote in comments below or on twitter (if you include #BwayHungerGames ONLY) you are in essence putting their name in the bowl. Once the votes are tallied a tribute will be chosen at random from the top choices in each District.
Please only choose one male or one female from each district (a district is defined as a currently running Broadway musical or play- that has started previews by April 1st- and tributes may only be chosen from current cast members, however they are NOT required to be stars. We will happily accept ensemble members as well as understudies and swings.). SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS ENTRY FOR ELIGIBLE DISTRICTS. Choose the strongest member from each District, who do you think will survive?!
Example: I nominate Ellyn Marsh from District Kinky Boots as Tribute to the games!
(You may nominate one from each district.)
The reaping will take place Wednesday April 9th 2014 at which point battles will be set between the TOP 24 tributes. I will go into further detail in the next post, but just know you will be able to sponsor a tribute you feel should win the games. Many of you participated last year and already know about this. The rules may change slightly, but it will be great just the same.
Each Friday we will post “battles” on which you can vote and sponsor. On each following Wednesday we will post the results on the previous battle.
Week 1 there will be 12 battles.
Week 2 there will be 6 battles.
Week 3 there will be 3 battles.
The final battle will be a three way battle to the death!
You now have the entire week to cast your votes. Get your friends involved, this is going to be EPIC!! There are going to be many interactive elements, get involved now.
May the odds be ever in your favor.
