I developed the following website http://songofthetrail.com to help publicize a new operetta style musical I have written.  

I hoped someone might have ideas for improving or marketing it. 

Thank you for visiting the site.

I think the site is great. I like the layout and the multimedia aspects. Nice combo of photos, text and audio.

Just one tiny thing (my personal pet peeve) There are occasional typos--not many--but easy to fix.

Your work looks and sounds fascinating (from one writer of historical plays to another).

Bets of luck to you.

Barbara

Good grief.  I cannot believe it.  I've corrected so many typos.  I can't believe how that form affects my typing. 

Thanks for catching it.  I'll check it out.

Good grief. I write wonderful comments about your website and one tiny thing that maybe you should check out, and all you see is the one tiny thing. Are we related?

Thank you Edd and Bkhan.

Bkhan, I'm quite sure we are related.  We are writers after all.  We may, in fact be twins.  We both apparently carry identical perfectionist writer genes. 

This show is a new thing for me.  It's actually a long rhymed poem/opera spoken over underscoring with intermittent sung dialog and separate songs.  It was difficult to write especially with the rhyming of lyrics, melodies, all in a native voice.  To have the music arranged and sung by such a talented young man was a huge bonus. 

Now I've just got to get it onstage.

The site in and of itself is very, very nice, but the one thing I'm not too keen on is the fact that the different song pages give away the whole plot.

That was the basis of my post.  Should I reveal so much of the plot on a website.  However, it is also a sort of synopsis of the play.

I am confused about the wisdom of using it.  Anyone have any experience?  or suggestions?
