Should ‘Tweet Seats’ be a Standard Option for Theater-goers?
Thursday, August 8, 2013
Audience members at the Providence Performing Arts Center have a new choice: to tweet or not to tweet during the show. The theater is now setting aside a small number of seats in the back of the venue for individuals who promise to live-tweet from the performance using a special hashtag.
What was once considered taboo (using your Smartphone during a show) is now completely acceptable at a growing number of theaters, including some on Broadway. Advocates for this new option claim that communicating their experience via Twitter or other social-media outlets “makes it feel a lot more personal” and consider the new trend a valuable tool in today’s digital world.
Other concert halls like the Huntington Theater in Boston plan to introduce a “Twittermission” where an artist connected with the production reports the latest happenings and answers questions about the show on Twitter during intermissions. This idea is a bit more conservative, but serves the same purpose- it creates a live “buzz” for the arts and engages more people across all demographics.
