At Saturday's matinee performance of War of the Worlds, the usual announcement about turning off cell phones was changed. The back row of the theater was reserved for tweeters. This section would allow individuals to tweet about the performance as they watched it using iPhones and Blackberries. Performance artist Brian Feldman was ushered to the tweeting section and his fingers were in constant motion during the show.
A little late. Good thing I'm very familiar with the War of the Worlds story. 11:19 AM War of the Worlds Actor Brandon Roberts is my long-lost brother. 11:20 AM Where's Orson? 11:22 AM Trivia: BrianFeldman's eaten dinner on OrlandoShakes' Goldman Theater stage w/ his family (FeldmanDynamic) 15 times. 11:24 AM Oh cool!
