I’m combining two assignments, Blogging 101’s “Edit your title and tagline” and Blogher’s prompt yesterday, “Write about an amazing imaginary brand or organization you’d love to work with. What would their pitch to you look like?”
I like the title and tagline of my blog. So I am going to turn Purple Prose into a purely fictional entity. Because my background is in public relations, my “pitch” is a press release:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Director of Marketing Communications
Purple Prose Productions
Announcing Purple Prose World Tour
Famous Performance Troupe Coming to Your City!
Lilac Land, MINN. (November 4, 2014) — World renown performance troupe, Purple Prose, takes its vibrant violet show on tour. Combining a mauve infused light show, boysenberry theatrics,costumes and make-up, with famous literary works influenced by the combination of blue and red, this infamous show is a must-see production!
“The actors transition from The Color Purple, seamlessly into Harold and the Purple Crayon brought tears to my eyes,” declared famous theatre critic Amethyst Aubergine. Unlike that other blue-hued troupe, Purple Prose perfectly combines words with theatrics, technology and acrobatics.
“To be honest, I was skeptical about this production,” David Burtka, husband to Tony Awards host Neil Patrick-Harris confided, “But when the Old Woman Character flies on to the stage, suspended by only two wires, throwing red hats to the audience all while reciting Jenny Joseph’s famous poem, we all rose to give her a spontaneous standing ovation.”
Tickets to these performances will sell-out fast! Be sure to order yours today @ticketmastercankissmylavendararse.
