there’s broadway people on tumblr now and tbh if they see this they’ll probs be pissed off but I’m gonna say it anyway

Broadway doesn’t realize that bootlegs play a huge role in this fandom. Broadway wouldn’t even have a fandom without bootlegs, for most of us bootlegs are our main way, and for some only way, to experience theatre. 

“Well why don’t you just go see it live in a theatre near you?” Because Hamilton isn’t playing at a regional theatre near me, it’s playing on Broadway, $614 dollars away from me. 

The fact that broadway just expects us to not engage in bootlegs is ridiculous, what else am I supposed to do? Be like “Wow! I love Fun Home, I’ve never actually seen it but gee I should would like to!” Like the only reason broadway has fans is because people watch bootlegs of the show.

Like I joined the Newsies fandom because I watched a bootleg, then I bought a bunch of their fucking overpriced merchandise, I saw the show multiple times when the tour came to my town and I bought the soundtrack twice. You know what I would have done if I hadn’t watched the bootleg? nothing.

Broadway can’t ask people to not watch bootlegs and then expect people to support them anyway. I get why Broadway doesn’t like bootlegs, I don’t particularly enjoy watching an out-of-focus and obstructed video of a show either, but there’s no alternative. 

I feel like Broadways “Bootlegs are the plague of broadway!” stance just shows how disconnected they are with their fans
