    Red face Life on Broadway BNG {Part One}

    I'm an extreme theatre fan and thought it would be wonderful to have a life game centered around it - but if you aren't a theatre fan, I think (maybe?) that this is relatively accessible. If you don't know your answer to any of the chance questions, though, just choose whichever one you'd like.

    Find a six-sided die at http://dice.virtuworld.net/ and then begin!

    Your name is {CHANCE – 1} and you are twenty-two years old. You grew up in {ROLL – 2}, but you have recently graduated from {ROLL – 3} in New York City, and, in an incredible stroke of luck – and after countless singing, acting, and dancing lessons – you have landed a leading role in a new revival on Broadway! {ROLL – 4}
