How It Works
Broadwayverse is an interactive competition inspired by communities like whedonland and jjverse and encompassing all Broadway-related theatre. Members are sorted into teams and then participate in games and challenges, such as writing fic, making graphics, and solving puzzles. Some of the challenges involve skill, but most of them are participation and/or luck based, so everyone and anyone can join in the fun. Points are awarded at the end of each challenge, and the team with the highest number of points at the end of the phase, wins.
Congratulations to Phase One Winners, Team Understudy!
We are currently preparing for Phase Two, which will run September 27 - December 4.
The Broadwayverse teams are:
teamensemble (Dance Captains: storybox and octagonal)
teamunderstudy (Dance Captains: kris_me and zachmanroolz)
Anna, aka bananners, is your Stage Manager. She keeps things running and acts as an impartial judge.
If you're new to land comms, see our FAQ Post for more information. When you're ready to get started, head over to the Application Post. After you've been sorted and joined the communities, you can check out the open challenges and start playing!
What Is Included
This community encompasses all Broadway, Off-Broadway, West End, Touring, and Regional shows, both plays and musicals.
Hollywood musicals are included as long as there is a corresponding stage version. For example, movie versions of Rent and Dreamgirls are included, while Moulin Rouge, Glee, and Doctor Horrible are not.
Non-musical movies that later had musicals based on them are not included. For example, the stage musicals of 9 to 5, Shrek, and Billy Elliot are included, but the original movies are not.
Stage versions of plays are included, but movies of plays are not, no matter which came first. For example, the Hamlet revival starring Jude Law is included, but the Hamlet movie starring Mel Gibson is not.
1. Play nice. Do not bash members, teams, shows, performers, etc.
2. All posts and comments should be PG-13 (or below) with regard to language and adult concepts. Please use common sense.
3. All members must participate in at least one challenge every week. Voting does not count toward this rule. After a week of non-participation, you will receive a reminder and be placed in limbo. If you do not participate the week after being placed in limbo, you will be cut from the game. You may return to the game if you wish, but you must reapply for a team. If you need to be absent from the game for more than a week, please let me know at the Page-a-Mod Post in advance and I will put you on hiatus.
