Can’t get enough theatre. Do you dream about being in a big Broadway production, tapping and singing your way to a standing ovation? Well…let me just feed this addiction a little more with three of the top Internet websites for the theatre.
First up – Playbill.com. If you have ever been to the theatre you know what a playbill is. For the one person who might read this article out of mild - it’s a program. Playbill.com gives readers daily updates on the latest and greatest happenings in the theatre world. It also hooks you up with tickets from Broadway to London. Membership is free, but they still give you the opportunity to get some really great discounts. There are also photo galleries, videos from some of the top shows, and a store in case you want to indulge your obsession a little more.
Second – IBDB.com. You know what IMDB is, Internet Movie Database? Now you can check out the Internet Broadway Database. What do you want to know about theatres, character, designers, awards, songs, and a so much more about Broadway? Go here! I will say that it is not always up to date with the latest and greatest info, bit it is a valuable source.
Finally, Theatermania.com. Visiting Minnesota next? Type it in, and see what is showing near where you will be staying and buy tickets. Don’t bother searching all over the net to find tickets, just go here. See the lists of the latest openings and closings, as well as the latest theatre news from around the web in one place.
I hope this helps the theatre geeks out there, and those who are just realizing that a little culture is a great thing.
