Next Industry Pro Webinar will take place on December 1.



November 8, 2021 -

After a week of announcements here at BroadwayWorld (more on those below), it has also been a week of mostly good news throughout the theatre industry - tourism numbers continue to climb in major regional hubs and theatres continue to announce fuller season schedules for the coming year. As we head into winter, many are bracing for a potential turn in the COVID-19 numbers, but all things continue to trend toward the positive as booster shots and more young people have become eligible for vaccination.

Industry Pro Webinar: The New Marketing Cycle with Rian Durham of Situation

As theatres across the globe have started the journey back to normal operations, one thing has become abundantly clear: audience members aren't buying tickets in the same way, or on the same cycle, that they were beforehand. As many producers have noted, audiences are buying tickets later and later in the cycle, with many ticket purchases coming within two weeks of the performance date. This shift means that producers and their marketing team must reconsider how and when they're making their media buys. For this webinar, we'll be joined by Situation's Rian Durham to discuss what producers should be considering, how Situation is dealing with the shift, and more!

Mark your calendars and register now for the webinar on December 1 at 3pm Eastern!

They were also given access to a custom platform on BroadwayWorld's Stage Mag to create the digital show program for the event.

Come From Away Demonstrates Safety Protocols

As COVID protocols continue to evolve in different communities, one question that many theatres are dealing with is how to message to the audience what those protocols are and how entering the venue might be a little different than audiences remember from pre-pandemic times. The Come From Away team offers one example of a great way to get the word out.

DANA H. and IS THIS A ROOM Extend for Two More Weeks
