Tonight on twitter, I was lamenting the lack of eligible, single, straight male Broadway fans. Then my lovelies (my name for "followers," a term I just don't dig) started chiming in -- I heard from gay, lesbian AND straight folks who are ALL having trouble finding love!
I joked that I should start a service for Broadway-loving singles. And then it hit me: with over 2,300 people reading my twitter feed, why SHOULDN'T I help them find each other?!
So, tonight I'm launching my first BroadwayGirl Dating Service ticket giveaway. I'm going to send two of my lovelies out on a date -- to a theatre production, of course!
The two winners will attend a performance of MCC Theater's The Pride , directed by Joe Mantello and starring Hugh Dancy. (The date of the performance will be determined after the winners are chosen and at the discretion of MCC.)
Want to go on a blind date, and see a show for free in the process?
Here are your instructions, lovelorn twitterers:
To enter the contest, introduce yourself on twitter with the hashtag #SingleOnBway.
Search #SingleOnBway to meet other Broadway-loving twitterers who want to go on a date.
When you spot someone you like, strike up a twitter conversation, using the hashtag #SingleOnBway. Conversations must be public (not over DM)!
Once you have made a match -- found a (previous) stranger with whom you'd like to attend the show -- BOTH twitters must send a tweet labeled @BroadwayGirlNYC and #SingleOnBway letting me know you've decided you want to blind-date each other.
At noon on Saturday, January 9, I'll choose a pair of tweeters who will win!
Then, post-date, you have to PROMISE to tweet at me and let me know how it went.
Here are a few little rules:
The two winners must never have met (and agree not to meet in person) before their date.
Both winners must be over 18 and able to get to New York City at their own expense at a date to be determined.
By entering, you acknowledge that meeting any stranger is a risk, and hold me (BroadwayGirlNYC), MCC, and all other parties outside yourselves, unaccountable.
The choice of winners will be subjective and mine alone.
The contest starts NOW! So get tweeting, cutie-pies.
And maybe we'll all be witness to true love found on Broadway!
