Yeah. I have always liked this photo but I wonder why they picked it. Totally out of the mainstream of Armitage images …

Wow. Not sure I’ve ever seen that one but it’s really lovely. Agree with you about the quote though!

You should be able to see it here: http://www.richardarmitagenet.com/images/gallery/Richard/Promos/2005%20Promo/index.html
I really liked the interview that went with it, too.

Thank you! I now remember that rather odd photoshoot, but had forgotten that shot. Tasty. 😀
That quote really doesn’t sound like him at all.

He could have stuck with “theater reminds us that we are alive” and he would have been fine … but whatever.
What the??? I mean, I like the quote (to an extent – there are other art forms that are quite alive, thank you very much…), but why the old hat of a picture? Was the new imagery too expensive to purchase??

it’s also a bit odd (but Alex Hurt’s graphic did this too) that he’s advertising for Holiday Inn and not the play he’s in.
I wonder if that’s really it — it was a free picture. Either that or it’s supposed to look more like he looks on stage now?

The longer I think of it – they surely have the rights to their own promo stills. I can’t understand why they didn’t use one of those, or a crop of a still. It also would’ve organically fitted with their LLL promo…
I hadn’t even registered that the ad is for “Holiday Inn”. (BTW – that title is really unfortunate imo. It took me a while to cop on that it actually wasn’t an ad for a chain of hotels…)

The company named the chain after the the musical, so …
I agree, it’s odd.

Oh, so I got the history wrong. The musical precedes the hotel chain? Interesting.

It’s a good way to get Richard Armitage’s name out there to the American/New York Audience – but where did it come from? Is it a promo sent out by RTC?

Yup. They are doing a series of these. I’ve seen the Alex Hurt one and I think a Zoe Kazan one also, but also from other actors in their current productions.

“Where”? Somethings sent out or on their website?
