Bingo! The Winning Musical

covermusical24092014

If you are into bingo, and you are into musicals, then I have a great little show to recommend especially for you. This interactive musical takes the simple little grandma gambling game and turns it into an entire comic drama with laughs galore. Stoking most of its fire from the formidable, talented, and hearty cast, Bingo! is a must see for anyone and everyone who loves a good, wholesome, interactive laugh. The story begins on a dark and stormy night. Not a very typical atmosphere for a comic musical, huh? Regardless, this storm, or hurricane rather, forms a strong semiotic element for a broken friendship between two of the main characters, Vern and Bernice. Once the best of friends, a flashback in the plot demonstrates to the audience how the two storm up their unbreakable relationship. The bingo quartet was originally made up of Vern,—the rather rough-around-the-edges, robust, crusty, yet [...]

Can you imagine being banned from a Bingo hall because you had a disease or disorder of some sort? I can understand if it was Ebola or something pretty contagious, but any other disease and the world would be fuming. But that didn’t stop one Bingo hall in the UK for banning a player with Tourette’s syndrome. 23-year-old Louis Bunn was asked to leave a Bingo hall in the UK due to his involuntary tics. If you’re not familiar with Tourette’s syndrome, it’s an affliction that causes a person to have involuntary tics. In many cases, those with Tourette’s syndrome swear uncontrollably and appear disruptive. However, many go on to lead normal lives and have successful careers. Dan Aykroyd, the famous Canadian actor who is arguably best known for his role in the hit motion picture Ghostbusters, was diagnosed with Tourette’s syndrome. And former Philadelphia Phillies outfielder has Tourette’s syndrome. [...]

When you think about hitting the jackpot, you probably think about slots games, not necessarily Bingo games. After all, when it comes to big Bingo wins, while thousand-dollar wins happen frequently, six-figure scores aren’t exactly a daily occurrence in the live world. But just the other day a woman in her 30s snowballed £2 into a very sweet £270,000 payday. For those on this side of the pond, that’s like turning $3.25 into about $480,000 US. It happened in the UK at Carlton Bingo club, which is hooked up to the National Game. That’s the United Kingdom’s national bingo game, which links Bingo halls together across the country. The woman managed to land a full house using just 44 numbers. That’s the lowest in the UK, which netted her £20,000 in prize money.

Bingo Goers Are Gone in a Puff!

coversmoking01092014

All through my childhood and adolescence, I constantly heard my grandfather say that famous refrain: “The road to hell was paved with good intentions”. As a child, I did not understand well what he meant, but as I grew up, I was able to grasp the meaning. Last week, almost unconsciously, that saying was the first thing that escaped my lips when I heard about the disastrous effects that the no smoking ban has caused on the bingo business! Seems like lighting up actually did lit up the bingo business! At this point, many of you might think that I might be going a little overboard… “Disastrous? Really? C’mon, it is a positive health issue!” But, I do not know what else to call a $100 million annual lost in the bingo revenue ever since the new law was implemented. Bingo runner Charles Lindstrom says that the law has affected [...]
