Submitter’s comments: New World Stages, great company, great venue, some great shows, but the website… Click on the events link? A completely separate page which is actually more functional. If you click on The Green Room, you’ll go straight to a Facebook page. What? Click on any of the shows’ icons? Pop-out windows. Gallery? Straight to the artist’s web-page—no information about the gallery itself. Click on the Stage Entertainment Logo at the top—which doesn’t match anything else—and you’re taken to another website.
On the Tickets page, see the buttons which say “TICKETS” next to each of the shows? They’re unclickable (you have to click on the picture of the show, instead). Finally, just for fun, look at the handy-dandy map on the Location page.
Vincent Flanders’ comments: I fully agree with what the submitter said. I’m using the site because the links take you to unexpected places and going unexpected places is not where your visitors want to go. Also the Gallery link takes you to a Flash-based website—which is fine unless you’re using an iOS device. The Stage Enterprises logo should not be at the top left. Normally, the top-left logo should take you to the home page unless it’s on the home page. They have a home link at the bottom of the menu on the left side, but that’s not where it should be.
Well, at least you can read the text (except on mobile).
