Broadway Star Bingo

Welcome to the first (and perhaps last) edition of Broadway Star Bingo.

Rules: As in regular Bingo, try to get five boxes in a row up, down, or diagonal. Mark off the boxes of Broadway stars you’ve seen perform live.

What counts: Broadway, off-Broadway, regional, or any other venue for live theatre. You must have seen them in a musical or play (not concert, benefit, etc.) and must have seen them live (DVDs, videos, and bootlegs don’t count).

Winning: When you hit a bingo, call it out on the comment space below. You do NOT need to be a registered Blogger user to post. You may be as anonymous as you’d like.

When you have a bingo, call off the five squares in which you won, listing at least one show you saw each performer in.

Prize: The prize is pride and bragging rights, plus the chance to share your beloved theatrical memories.

If people express interest, I can make this a regular feature on my blog.

Wow, johnnyangel . . . Was that a coverall? :) You New York people make me jealous.

I wrote it so I could get a bingo, so it's not really fair.

My bingo:

Jose Llana--SPELLING BEE
Christine Andreas--PIAZZA (tour)
Amy Spanger--WEDDING SINGER
Stephanie J. Block--WICKED
Blake Hammond--HAIRSPRAY, MUSIC MAN

I've seen others, but that's my bingo.
