Gutenberg 101

Many of the TRW content types (shows, products, faqs, authors, etc.) are very custom in order to ensure both the form and the function remains consistent throughout the site.

However standard pages, including the homepage, are more of a “freeform” style to allow you to customize as much or as little as you like. These pages are made from a series of “blocks”. These blocks each have their own features and style attributes that can be used to make image galleries, multiple columns, stylized quotes, video embeds, spacers, standard content and different headings.

You can check out the “Default Gutenberg Blocks in WordPress” section here for a great resource to learn more about standard content blocks.
If you are interested, you can also get a basic tutorial on some of the tips, tricks and shortcuts when using Gutenberg.

The Home Page (this is a standard heading block)

Below are some examples of blocks that were specifically built for the homepage to recreate some of the visual styles the site was intended to use, as well as provide flexibility for site admin. (This is a standard paragraph block) and below is a spacer block that can be set to provide a small amount or large amount of space between blocks. This one below is set at 75px.

This is a Home Intro block.

It consists of a large background image with left column text overlaid.

It also includes two specific callouts/buttons that you can add button text to, as well as a link. Each callout has an image. It is recommended consistent at 310 x 310px.

You can also select the color you want each callout to be displayed in, blue and green in this case, but white is also an option.

Douglas Carter Beane’s FAIRYCAKES, the Off Broadway sensation, is now available worldwide!

Fairycakes playwright Douglas Carter Beane, whose zinger-filled œuvre includes “The Little Dog Laughed” and the musical “Xanadu,” combines an acid wit with a gushy love of show biz.” —The New Yorker


Tony Award Winner for Best Musical!

Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, MONTY PYTHON’S SPAMALOT retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people. Did we mention the bevy of beautiful showgirls? The 2005 Broadway production won three Tony® Awards, including Best Musical, and was followed by two successful West End runs. The outrageous, uproarious, and gloriously entertaining story of King Arthur and the Lady of the Lake will delight audiences as they search for the Holy Grail and “always look on the bright side of life.”
