Title of Show and not [title of show][edit]

Please read WP:MOSTM, which explains why in an encyclopedia, the correct English formatting is used (ie. Title of Show) and not the stylistic preferences of advertising material. Specifically, see:

"Avoid using special characters that are not pronounced, are included purely for decoration" Thus, the square brackets are eliminated (except in the first line to indicate the styling of the text in promotional material). For example Yellow Tail (wine) (styled as [ yellow tail ]).

"Trademarks rendered without any capitals are always capitalized" For example Thirtysomething (styled as thirtysomething).

See also the naming conventions policy WP:NC, specifically

"Follow standard English text formatting for article names that are trademarks"

Remember, there is no difference in how [tiotle of show] and Title of Show are read or pronounced, the difference lies only in the stylistic formatting, which needs only be mentioned once in the lead sentence. Subsequently, standard English rules should be used throughout. Cheers, Nouse4aname (talk) 08:41, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

This needs to be discussed properly. Being a fan of the show means this is quite important to me. There is a discussion at WP:MT currently on this subjectMark E (talk) 11:44, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

Copy-edit of latter section[edit]

I've just finished the copy-edit requested in the Title of show show section. I note that it's entirely referenced by Youtube videos, which aren't generally considered to be suitable references. I also deleted a long list of 'review' video links. A better (read: an editor more interested in this article than me!) might like to improve the referencing to encompass third-party references or alternately delete the entire section as s/he sees fit.

Off-Broadway Show in Jackson, MI[edit]

An Off-Broadway show is being produced in Jackson, MI, at The 4th Wall and was announce by Gary Minix. Can this be added? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.41.1.78 (talk) 21:57, 1 September 2011 (UTC)

Should we include *every* off-Broadway production? Should a rural am dram group in Nether Wallop's (hypothetical!) production be included too? No - unless you can provide references in reliable, third-party sources. Otherwise, the article fills up with cruft and becomes useless. Been there, done that.
