Indefinite Suspension of Operations

Dear Readers,

It is with sadness and regret that I write to inform you of an indefinite suspension of operations of BROADWAYHOUR.COM.

I moved back to California in March for familial reasons and have since found the added work of maintaining broadwayhour.com too much. I knew it would be a challenge to manage the website and team from eight hundred miles away, but when it became apparent that even keeping up with news stories and updating the news blog was too much for me to handle, I realized that it is no longer fair to you, the readers, or myself to continue to stretch the limited time I have only to post information late and miss shows. I had hoped that, perhaps, someone on the current team may have the time amidst full class-loads or full-time work to take on the managing of broadwahour.com, but unfortunately it does not seem to be the case.

Perhaps, sometime in the future, broadwayhour.com could be relaunched. But who knows? For now, I write to thank you all for your support and comments through the last four years. I started this website as a Sophomore Theatre major at Seattle University and it blossomed into something I never could have imagined at the time: a full team of reviewers, our own ".com," several blogs as well as a homepage. It has been a privilege and an honor to review the shows and update you readers on news about the Seattle Theatre scene. This has truly been a defining endeavor for me and I hope that you have enjoyed reading our reviews at least half as much as we've enjoyed writing them.

Thank you, Seattle.

Happy Holidays,
Andrew J. Perez (aka. Nigel Andrews)
