I first told you about Lights of Broadway Show Cards last year in The PopCult Gift Guide, but we’re going to remind you of that gift idea today because they have just released a new series of cards and they have several exciting projects on tap. Also, it’s a good way to tell you that you can hear Curtain Call, our musical theater show hosted by Mel Larch, every Wednesday at 3 PM, with several replays through the week, and marathons Sunday evenings at 6 PM and overnight Wednesdays at Midnight.
You can listen to The AIR at the website, or on this embedded radio player…
With that premable out of the way, next up in The 2019 PopCult Gift Guide is a trading card set that I wrote about here and in Non Sport Update last year. The Lights of Broadway Show Cards feature the artwork of Broadway’s reigning caricaturist, Squiggs, and present the stars, theaters and shows of The Great White Way in trading card form. This is the absolutely perfect gift for the theatre fanatic on your holiday shopping list.
The Lights of Broadway Show Cards celebrate Broadway theatre. The stories and the storytellers, the art and the artisans, those who make it all possible and the community embracing it. Shows, actors, directors, writers, designers, and all else in the spotlight or behind the scenes who keep the theatrical world spinning.
Over at The Lights of Broadway website, you’ll find special deals where you can get packs of their new 2019 Edition, with dozens of new faces showing up in the series for the first time. You’ll also find deals on binders and starter kits (which include an illustrated binder and several packs of cards).
If you want to go whole hog, you can find entire boxes of 36 packs, to shower your theatre fanatic with loads of great cards. You can even find single-show packs for Fiddler on The Roof, Fun Home and Dear Evan Hansen. They have everything from stocking stuffers to mid-sized gifts to BIG TICKET items.
The cards are beautifully printed and feature the amazing art of Squiggs. If you’ve got a theatre kid on your gift list, this is where you need to go. You can order directly from The Lights of Broadway Show Cards website, or go to New York and look for them in Schubert Alley and The Drama Bookstore.
This is the perfect gift for the Broadway Baby and die-hard theatre buff on your holiday shopping list.
