We spoke with Davenport about the game play, the design and how he took it too all aspects of theatre works from the lighting person, to the stage hand, to the understudy, to the stars, directors and as far as the ticket takers to give Be A Broadway Star the most authentic feel possible. We even try to convince Davenport to let us in behind the scenes when he brings one of shows to the Los Angeles area.
Be A Broadway Star isn’t your typical board game. This is a Broadway board game starring YOU in the spotlight. Roll the dice, move through the board and pick cards that challenge them to sing, dance, or act out lines from their favorite Broadway shows. Start out in acting school and work your way up to the top, buying pictures and resumes, earning an Equity card, getting an agent and publicist, going to auditions, getting cast in shows, and maybe even winning a Tony Award. The star who accumulates the most fans along the way to the Broadway Hall of Fame wins the game.
