Biografia

Manhattan Street

Broadway significa em inglês “Avenida Larga”, e em Nova Yorque existem várias “Broadways”, mas uma delas se tornou referência e até nome próprio: Trata-se da Manhattan Street, onde hoje se concentram 39 grandes teatros profissionais que mantêm peças em cartaz por anos.

Ao dizer hoje “Teatro Broadway”, estamos falando, na verdade, de todos esses teatros profissionais e peças ali apresentadas. Muitos o consideram uma forma teatral. O fato é que o “Teatro Broadway” é o mais lucrativo e talvez famoso centro teatral do mundo. Representa o mais alto nível profissional e comercial do teatro.

O porquê chamamos esse aglomerado de teatros como se fosse uma coisa só, entenderemos mais adiante.

A história da Broadway remonta a própria história do teatro nos EUA. Mas sua fama e popularidade começa no séc. IXX, com a concentração de teatros em Manhattan e também devido a acessibilidade que a classe média obteve às apresentações. Era um sucesso. Mas o cinema mudo, que ainda não representava uma concorrência forte, evoluiu e adquiriu som sincronizado, o que o popularizou e começou a esvaziar as salas da Broadway, que sofreram mais ainda com a Grande Depressão que derrubou a economia americana.

Em 1943 a história começa a mudar com a estréia de “Oklahoma”, que atraiu o público de volta aos teatros, batendo um recorde de mais de duas mil apresentações. Mais espetáculos surgiram, batendo recorde sobre recorde de tempo em cartaz e, rapidamente, a Broadway se tornava o mais alto nível teatral do mundo. Em 1947 é criado o Tony Awards, uma espécie de “Oscar do teatro” que visava, principalmente, premiar os melhores da Broadway.

    I completely agree with NeoAnjou. The "do yourself a favor" is agressive and terrible.

    If you fix your tags using something like http://musicbrainz.org/doc/MusicBrainz_Picard it can be done in just a few mouse clicks.

    I think a lot of the debate would end if the description were made less patronising. The 'do yourself a favor' line really rubs me up the wrong way, and is needlessly hostile. A switch to a more gentle and positive description might actually get people to change their artists, something like: 'Original Broadway Cast' is a generic artist label used for various Broadway shows. Last FM recommends that rather than using the generic cast label changing your tags, to include the actual artist name in the artist field, so that artists can receive the plays they deserver and statistics can be kept clean.'

    How long has this debate been going? Since the birth of last.fm? Nothing has changed since, and it's obvious that nothing will. It's time to put a lid on it.

    I plan on keeping the OBC tag, since I use it to differentiate between different casts. Some show originally start in London, in which case I use Original London Cast. Some shows start Off-Broadway, so I use Original Off-Broadway cast and so on and so forth. I'd rather not have Adam Pascal/Heather Headley, Sherie Rene Scott/Adam Pascal/Heather Headley, and Heather Headley/Sherie Rene Scott as three separate artists in my library under one album, when I can simplify them down into Original Broadway Cast as the artist and have the album as Aida.

    You would not be alone. Last.fm looks at Musicbrainz for guidelines how to tag music and just look at http://musicbrainz.org/doc/Style/Specific_types_of_releases/Theatre

    I could if I wasn't using Last.fm. Since nobody else tags their tracks like that, I would most likely be the sole listener for each and every showtune I own, thus eliminating a large part of the social portion of the site, which is a large portion of what I like. Also - and admittedly this is a less serious issue, and I'd certainly learn to deal with it if I ever did switch everything over - that's an ugly tag, especially for horrifically long cast recording names, such as "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (1968 London Concept Album)." It also feels like a waste of my available tags - like now I should use the album tag for something else, since it would essentially be a repeat of the artist. There are pros and cons for all the different tagging options but none of them are ideal.

    If you tag the albums as "Show Name (production)" you would be able to tell them apart.

    It's nice to pretend there's a simple solution here, but there simply isn't. I'm not a fan of the "Original Broadway Cast" tag (as it does tend to lump a bunch of unconnected shows together) but tagging the composer as the artist is crazy unhelpful for Broadway cast recordings. The plethora of *different* cast recordings of the same show (not to mention composer demos) means that I should have four or five different songs titled "This is the Moment," all listed with Frank Wildhorn as the artist, but all recorded by different singers from different casts. The best solution I've come up with is tagging each individual song by the actual singers performing, which makes MusicBrainz mad but, honestly, it functions as a cover. Why would I tag a cover as being by the original artist rather than the artist singing it?

    I wish I could change tags imported from mog.com when I listen to a show. This is the silliest tag.

    @Sheikm: Listing by composer is what makes most sense and it's also policy, see http://musicbrainz.org/doc/Musical_Soundtrack_Style It certainly makes more sense that using artificial artists like the album name, location where it was performed or simply as Soundtrack like many do.
