Commercial Loans – Take All Aspects In Consideration

As the saying goes, taking a loan is easier than surviving with it. A shrewd businessman is one who borrow but with an eye to repay it as soon as possible. Sometimes, business requirements arise because you get a new business order hat is hard to manage within your own business funds. You obviously cannot afford to lose big business opportunity only because the funds are not there.

These and other similar situations force you to take help of external sources of financing. These sources may be temporary or permanent, depending on the nature of funding. Large body corporate often have huge financial needs, and therefore, they resort to public financing by inviting deposits or going for a ‘rights issue’ meant for the existing shareholders. On the other hand, a new business concern or sole proprietorship undertaking would obviously not be able to take benefit of that sort – neither are these meant for them.

Before applying for commercial loans, first of all decide the type of debt financing that your business firm will be comfortably able to get. If you do not own any property in the name of firm, secured commercial business loans are out of question. You will have to rely on loans that do not require any security. These loans will offer you a limited amount – upto £25,000. The interest rate is likely to be little more than what you can get by pledging some property. The amount of loan that you can qualify for can be increased by involving some property in the loan transaction.

Blue Man Group Launches First Theatrical Tour of North America

Blue Man Group has been around since the late 1980′s. They have shows in New York, Boston, Chicago, Orlando, Las Vegas, Germany, Japan, and Sweden. They also have a production running on a Norwegian Cruise Line.

The trio of blue skinned, earless, speechless, alopecia suffers have appeared in dozens of commercials and television shows as well as numerous high profile live events.

However, they are most famous for and will always be famous for one thing: being on Arrested Development.

On the hilarious but ill-fated Fox sitcom, the character Tobias Fnke-the first licensed “analrapist” (a combination of analyst and therapist)-tried to join the Blue Man Group. He mistakenly believed it was a support group for depressed men.

As a result, Fnke spent most of the second season in a blue hue. The makeup, which stretched from his head to his toes, was constantly getting onto everything. And in a hilarious contradiction of the aforementioned description, Fnke wore glasses and failed to shave off his bushy moustache.

Arrested Development is a cult classic. Separating one’s self from such a thing is quite difficult, but if anyone can do it, it’s The Blue Man Group.

The creative organization launched their first ever theatrical tour on Sept. 14, 2010 in Dallas, Texas. Prior to that, the show played in Fayetteville, Arkansas for about a week.

The tour will visit nearly 40 cities culminating with a multi-week stand at the Golden Gate Theatre in San Francisco, California.

Tickets are currently on sale for a majority of shows.

The tour features stuff from their current productions as well as brand new stuff created just for this outing.

Traditionally, Blue Man Group shows are a cross between a rock concert and a theater show. Their act utilizes music, comedy, and multimedia elements. The trio is accompanied on stage by a live band.

“We can’t wait to show the country what we’ve been working on. This show combines Vegas-sized production values and spectacle with the intimate Off-Broadway experience for which we are best known,” says Chris Wink, Blue Man Group co-founder.

Some of the new features fans can expect to see are a proscenium-sized LED curtain and a high-resolution screen. The traveling production also employs new sets and a new sound design.

Aspects of the show that haven’t changed are the good times and the audience participation.

“Our show is really more about the collective experience of the audience. It’s about all of us embracing a sense of wonder and discovery, and celebrating together rather than passively viewing a performance,” explains co-founder Phil Stanton.

The Blue Man Group was founded by Phil Stanton, Chris Wink, and Matt Goldman in 1987 in Manhattan. The trio’s first show, Tubes, was well-received by both critics and audiences and eventually earned them an Obie Award (bestowed by the Village Voice to off-Broadway theater groups and performers). That show is still running at the Astor Place Theatre. The group’s first show outside of New York opened in Boston at the Charles Playhouse in 1995.

In addition to their theatrical shows, the Blue Man Group has also released several albums and performance DVD’s. A full-length 3-D movie starring the Blue Man Group is scheduled for release at IMAX theaters in 2011.
