March 2019 Updates

Spring has arrived and as things have started to heat up, so have the season announcements.  Here’s the latest from March 2019!

March Season Announcements

From a statistical point, March saw 38 seasons announced, which was just two more than the previous year. The top day for announcements was Monday, which had 12 announcements–helped by the fact that nine of those announcements came on the same day (March 11th). Here are the top five shows announced in the month:

Also, for those who aren’t aware, I have a Patreon page that I have had for about a few months. I wanted to give a special shout out to my first patron, Jason Clark, who is at the Broadway Star tier. He gets first dibs on the blogs and get a personalized newsletter with news and information.
