Broadway Playbill: HD/HP ATC Swap

42nd Street, Chicago, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Wicked, Chorus Line….the list goes on! Ever since I was a kid, I have LOVED Broadway musicals. It was such a treat when my grandmother would dress me up and take me to a traveling Broadway show. I always loved getting the Playbills before the show and looking at the graphical images. This swap is centered on Broadway Playbills. Create a playbill ATC of your favorite play or musical—because the show must go on!:yes:

cRude hArt
03-06-2012, 09:00 AM

Welcome Pamitha!!!

03-06-2012, 10:11 AM

cRude hArt
03-06-2012, 11:26 PM
It is up for interpretation. If you want to include it, go for it! If not, that's okay too!

03-07-2012, 02:00 PM
Ok....I'll try this now that you have pushed the date back. I am a live play junkie so this will be fun and challenging.

Hope to get some cards done soon for some inspiration!

03-13-2012, 11:25 PM
Sign me up! Just so I am sure ... an atc about a Broadway musical. Like the characters would be OK?

cRude hArt
03-14-2012, 05:52 PM
Yay! Thanks for playing SunTrade. Yep, characters are fine. I you look up broadway playbills online, you'll get many ideas! And it doesn't have to be a musical, it can be a play too.

03-14-2012, 11:54 PM
I feel like "duh" Now I get it. how could I not before? Probably because I was running through the threads ... I lived in NY in my college years. I only went to see Zorba when I was there, but I was a poor college student on a grant trying to survive! LOL

But I got to see Anthony Quinn playing. Totally AMAZING! I used to be a syn phony, opera, Broadway buff. Ish, need to get out more!

03-17-2012, 08:46 PM
Hey there players. Hope you're having a great weekend! Anyone go see any good plays recently?

03-17-2012, 08:51 PM
My most recent was a play called "The Recommendation" at the Old Globe down here in San Diego. It was a world premier social commentary by Jonathan Caren. The play was a critic's pick and I really enjoyed it. It was sort of a dramedy but more drama than comedy. Well done.

cRude hArt
03-18-2012, 05:36 PM
I never heard of it. I had to look it up! Last one I saw was Shrek the Musical at the Bass Hall. It was great! They used some of the puppets from Lion King..another one of my favorites.

03-19-2012, 01:42 PM
Did you check my post? :twitcy:

cRude hArt
03-19-2012, 05:39 PM
SunTrade, I who isn't trying to survive NY? LOL!!! I definately need to get out more. Too bad a good show costs so darn much!

03-25-2012, 11:59 AM
I think you want the U.S. artists to put a 45 cent stamp on the envelope. I guess postage went up since you wrote the directions. Just saying...

cRude hArt
03-25-2012, 07:07 PM
Thanks Pamitha! You are right. I made the correction. Thanks again!

cRude hArt
03-27-2012, 12:02 AM
There are a LOT of active swaps right now. I think we are getting lost in the mix. Encourage your friends to come on over. I'll make a special something for the person that has the most referrals that participate in this swap.

03-27-2012, 02:34 AM
Getting ready to see Rock of Ages this weekend down here in San Diego. I'm looking forward to it. I sketched my four cards this morning. Hope to get one finished tomorrow.

03-27-2012, 09:26 AM

cRude hArt
03-27-2012, 07:34 PM

03-27-2012, 09:19 PM
Finally finished a card:

03-27-2012, 09:43 PM
These are all drawn free-hand while looking at Playbills. If this is not what you are looking for, will you please pm me and let me know. Thanks...:)

03-27-2012, 11:48 PM
Hi! I'm new, and I'm a big fan of Broadway musicals - I'd like to play!

03-28-2012, 01:30 AM
I got inspired and decided to finish up my other 3 cards. I see "Wicked" is a popular card!

cRude hArt
03-28-2012, 02:38 AM

03-29-2012, 12:41 AM
I went to Wicked for my birthday last year! It was a wicked, awesome, great day for an little, old me... I hope it comes back again soon. I'll go see it again!

03-31-2012, 11:12 PM

Here are my other 2 cards. Although not sure they stack up to the talent that's been posted here. I do enjoy a challange though!

04-03-2012, 12:32 PM
Wow I LOVE you anything goes. Did you make it on canvas? I can see the texture.

Mine are postal.

Hey stay safe off the storm!

cRude hArt
04-03-2012, 12:37 PM
Thanks SunTrade! It is not canvas per se...but a textured ACT paper called cavas, I think. I love the way it grad the makers and doesn't show the bleed lines as much, but it is harder to do detail on the bumpy surface.

cRude hArt
04-03-2012, 10:11 PM
SunTrade, you cards arrived...and they are...Wow..wow..WOW! Thanks so much for the extra card and extras!

04-03-2012, 10:17 PM
Wow! That was FAST! Did you fair the storm well?

cRude hArt
04-03-2012, 11:06 PM
I did...skipped over me. Thanks for asking!

04-06-2012, 01:50 PM

04-06-2012, 11:57 PM
Whoot! I'll be on the lookout Pochadiva!

04-08-2012, 11:21 AM
Forgot to mention how fabulous "Rock of Ages" was. Hollywood is making a movie of it with Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, and Catherine Zeta-Jones. I'm presuming they will play the older people roles!

cRude hArt

Cards are swapped, sealed and stamped--ready to go in the mail tomorrow! Please let me know when they start arriving to their new homes. And thank you all for playing!

04-30-2012, 09:57 PM
OMG Time flies ....

04-30-2012, 09:58 PM
I am so happy I entered this swap. It made me remember wonderful times I've had with friends or family at the plays. If you haven't seen "A Little Night Music" may I recommend it? It was a fun musical with a silly plot but I left smiling and had a lovely time. I can hardly wait until Wicked comes again. I've read the book since seeing it and think one has very little to do with the other but, oh , how I loved the music! The magic! Now.... I need to start stalking the mail man!

05-01-2012, 12:10 AM
I'm looking forward to my returns. My DH and I are going to see a new musical called "Hands on a Hard Body" next Tuesday at the La Jolla Playhouse. It's not what you think it is about. It is about a contest to keep your hands on a hard bodied truck for a chance to win it. It should be fun.

05-02-2012, 09:33 PM
Awesome cards received today! Leaves trader and rock asap!

Pochadiva have fun!

05-03-2012, 06:09 PM
Shannon, my art arrived! Many thanks to everyone who played. I'm wishing I were at a play right now. It's a crummy, wet, grey, rainy, icky day. I need a little sunshine. This art helped. Thank you!

05-05-2012, 01:38 AM
thanks Jenniferc, suntrade and wolfwynd for my awesome cards! thanks to our awesome hostess.

05-05-2012, 01:48 AM

05-24-2012, 08:36 AM
Wolfwynd and Jennifer C, did you two receive your cards? I would think they would have had enough time to arrive by now. But I am concerned I haven't heard from either of you.
