I’ll have a writeup about our experience seeing She Loves Me later today, I hope (executive summary: very good, you should go, it’s the last week) but for the moment I’ll just comment on Arena Stage’s odd advertising.
Uh, what? Did they pick this up at a white elephant sale when the now-defunct WB network dumped their old collateral before becoming the CW? From a 2004 (when this sucked the first time) writeup: “During tonight’s shows, the WB had the words “Fresh Episode” in the lower right-hand corner of the screen. Hmm… Is that just fresh as in new or fresh as in “funky fresh”?”
Seriously Arena: ditch this phrase. It was lame when it was original, ie, not now that you’re using it.
