Broadway Challenge boots up Sep. 24

iPhone trivia game the latest legit-centric tech toy

Dramatic Forces’ theater trivia iPhone app “Broadway Challenge” will go live at the Apple Store Friday. It’s the latest in an increasingly large lineup of smartphone programs that unite legiters and techies — a counter intuitive offshoot of the Main Stem, which includes Art Meets Commerce’s iBroadway (not to be confused with canceled musical revue iSondheim).

The new program is the work of Dori Berinstein, who has also hooked in Rialto box offices to mobile phones with the Broadway App, which alerts theatergoers to deals on potentially pricey theater tix. Legiter and kids’ TV personality John Tartaglia will promote the “Broadway Challenge” trivia game, which allows theater buffs to compete against each other and themselves.
