In an effort to make Off-0ff-Broadway and alternative New York shows more accessible to the numerous tourists and locals who rush through Times Square on a daily basis, Aaron Beall and the Todo Con Nada Company in association with the Show World Center will premiere the "Alternative Broadway Wall" at the Times Square Theatre and Entertainment Center on Jan. 17 (a week later than the previously-announced date, Jan. 10). The wall, stretching forty feet, will feature information on over 175 shows and events playing every week in and around New York City. Staff members from the Todo Con Nada Company will curate the Alternative Broadway Wall weekly, selecting the top ten shows playing in the world of Alternative Broadway and highlighting those shows on the wall. Events including benefits, panels, and theatre festivals, will all have their own section of the wall. The wall will provide a location where one can learn about the dynamic and lively world of theatre which exists beyond the confines of the Times Square theatre district.
Also on Jan. 10, an Internet version of the Alternative Broadway Wall will be launched at www.alternativebroadway.com. The Times Square Theatre and Entertainment Center is a project headed by Aaron Beall of Todo Con Nada and The Show World Center. Since 1988, Todo Con Nada and Aaron Beall have presented over 3,000 shows and festivals in New York City. The current project of the Alternative Broadway Wall represents the continuing collaboration between Todo Con Nada and the Show World Center.
