You're so right, Ryhog. The Drama Book Shop, like many, many book (and lost record) stores is SO much more than just a business. It is a meeting place for our tribe of theatre people, and a chance to find community with like minded individuals, especially when visiting or moving to a big city. I've found "soul mates" at the DBS, the Strand, and the few other gems we still have (and also did for many years at Footlights, Tower, etc...) To me, physical bookstores serve a different function than buying online. Even people I know who buy most everything online, have said to me they are so glad they can spend time-before or after a show-browsing at the Drama Book store, and not just the big chain stores in Times Square (the same stores as in most other malls in America). The Drama Book Shop is individual and NYC-specific.
Thank you Lin-Manuel for saving this for the tribe!!!
