Trailers for Theater

So, I've seen two trailers for theater. This one for Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson (sorry, can't find a link) and this one for the Under the Radar Festival:

Under The Radar 2011 from UTRFestival on Vimeo.

You know what they have in common? They both rely on their review snippets to sell themselves.

Am I the only one who hates it when something tells me how good it is? I think both ads would be far more effective if you just showed your show in all its flying colors. If you can't make it look good without telling people it's good, try harder. Or quit.


(Although that being said, the Under the Radar trailer does actually look cool).

Nope, although I did that on my program for "Tulpa," in a roundabout way.

Inorite! Jeez, if you're gonna copy movies, copy the shit they get RIGHT!
