Swine Flu, please, I understand Joe Biden told everybody to stay home this morning. Thanks Joe. Certainly I don’t want anybody getting swine flu, but really the economy, sub zero temperatures for days on end and now this. Inevitably someone is going to call me and ask what effect the Swine Flu is having on Chicago Theatre. Get ready for a survey. That’s it for the rant.
In a couple of weeks we are going to have the results of our Online Ticketing Market Research Survey. We surveyed patrons in theatres and the Hot Tix buyers list. Some of the preliminary findings are very interesting and not what we think. The survey was completed by Slover-Linnet and funded by The Chicago Community Trust. More to come soon.
