OhboyOhboyOhboy

Sneak peak at the new Yankee stadium. Sorry about the annoying ads at the start.

LOHud Yankee Report

Some folks are asking what was wrong with the old stadium? Lets put it this way. Imagine you've got a choice of working a show in an older Broadway house. The FOH is gorgeous but backstage is fairly outdated and small. You spend your free time in the plenum and your coat is hanging up in the hallway. The bathrooms are nasty and the walk up to dressing rooms or follow spot positions is heart attack inducing.

Then you've got an opportunity to work at the Met. FOH is beautiful, just like a Broadway house. But backstage is a different story. Big stage, loading doors, elevators onstage and off, shop areas, lounges, a space designed for theatrical production in mind.

Where would you rather work?

I'd take the stadium over the theatre any day, but of course you have to look at the big picture. The theatre is probably a smarter choice in the long run.
