Broadway Lights Up Green

Broadway Lights Up Green

Celebrities have long been on the green bandwagon, with their eco-friendly homes, environmental causes and lists of endorsements. Broadway has, for the most part, been in the dark...until now! Broadway institutions in New York are meeting about going green and what they can do to affect some environmentally-sound change.

The "Wicked" staff has already vowed to do more correspondence and advertising by digital, instead of paper, means. In regards to the bright, shiny lights associated with Broadway, stagehands will be working with more eco-friendly light bulbs and using smarter timers.
