Broadway in San Francisco illustrated the importance of interacting with customers via social networks today. They hosted an interactive session in which Facebook fans could ask Shrek (of Shrek the Musical) any question, and he answered. View the conversation here.

The (so far) hit musical “Wonderland” is coming to Broadway in the spring. The modern take on the classic Alice in Wonderland is beginning to brand itself, not only with its regular website, but also with a simple, enjoyable, interactive story book that allows viewers to flip through a few pages that tell the basic premise of the show and that give viewers a preview of the show in pictures.

The show has also come up with a clever tag line: “A New Alice. A New Musical.

The story book certainly has my attention, and I look forward to seeing how the show markets itself in the future.  The musical is one of the first Alice in Wonderland musicals, but Alice in Wonderland has been rehashed in film many times, so it should be interesting to see how this takes on.

When you have an interesting title, it can be fun to do a play on words in your marketing material. The upcoming Broadway show, “How To Succeed in Business without Really Trying” has mastered this technique. They make the revival interested, not only by hiring Daniel Radcliffe to play the lead, but by using the “How To” part of the musical’s title to sell the show.

The show’s website features several “How To’s.” Viewers can learn “How To… Get Tickets,” “How To… Get to the Theatre” and “How To… Tell Your Friends.” Not only is this creative, but it allows users to interact with the site through social media and ticketing services.  It attracts attention.

The website also features a recently released commercial for the show with “How To Succeed on Broadway.”
