      There are gazillions of digital Broadways, and none includes the Condensed? Really? I guess we have to wait for ATF Collection’s definitive version then.

      Somehow it looks much cuter than the regular. The different 'w’ helps with that, I suppose.

      And the ‘e’ and triangle dots. It’s really a different design than Broadway — much cheekier.
