The current article you are reading does not reflect the views of the current editors and contributors of the new Ecorazzi

Ecorazzi reported earlier this year that the Broadway production of Wicked was getting a super green makeover! Well now it looks like the rest of the Broadway scene is following the lead!

The Great White Way is changing shades as the theater community embraces “Broadway Goes Green,” a new environmental initiative which hopes to “to reduce Broadway’s carbon footprint, adopt environmentally sustainable practices and promote environmental awareness in the creation and presentation of Broadway shows.”

In partnership with the Natural Resources Defense Council and the support of Mayor Michael Bloomberg, the initiative will help the theater scene become a little more green with new practices like:  washing costumes in cold water, printing theatre related eco-tips in Playbill Magazine, energy efficient lighting in theater marquees, rechargable batteries in sound equipment, sets made from more environmentally preferable materials and offsetting the carbon emissions of national tours by investing in renewal energy.

“This initiative and this commitment brings together the entire Broadway community. We’ve established three committees and they have begun practice and the adoption of better practices as the first step of an ongoing process in making Broadway greener. More task forces will be developed as more people get involved,” said Broadway League executive director Charlotte St. Martin in a statement.

We’re totally jazzed to hear that Broadway will be hopping on the green bandwagon and look forward to seeing what the theater company has in store for us next!
