Blog Profiles: Theater Blogs

Welcome to Blog Profiles! Each week, we select a topic and handful of blogs that do a great job contributing to the conversation. For lovers of the fine arts, this week’s list is dedicated to theater blogs. Do you have a blog that deserves recognition? Tweet our writers at @BeyondBylines.

Theater Blogs We Love - mediablog.prnewswire.com

I love going to the theater. I honestly don’t do it often enough.

This spring, I’d like to change that, and go back to seeing some wonderful performances in and around the DC area.

Here are some blogs that inspire me to get out there and take in some shows.

For even more theater content, check out our 2021 post Our Favorite Theater Blogs, Act 2.

1. Playbill

If you’re a theater-goer, you’re familiar with the iconic yellow/black/white cover of Playbill.

Playbill.com is a site that features Broadway, off-Broadway, London news, show listings, and ticket information. Also, if you’re looking for theater jobs, there’s a section for job-seekers to check out for auditions, casting calls, performing arts, and Broadway administrative positions.

Stories to read right now: Go Inside the First It’s (Game) Showtime at Beetlejuice on Broadway, Watch Ben Platt and James Corden Belt It Out in ‘A Soundtrack to a Bromance,’ and Sounds Bites 6.0 Musical Festival Winners Announced.

2. HowlRound

HowlRound is a “free and open platform for theatremakers worldwide that amplifies progressive, disruptive ideas about the art form and facilitates connection between diverse practitioners.”

“We seek to democratize the arts by effectively modeling the transformative power of commons based practice,” the site says.

Some featured topics include conflict zones, migration, and the rural urban divide. The site offers essays, videos, podcasts, and upcoming events.

Posts that caught my eye include: Ashes and the Serious, Eerie Art of Puppetry and Theatre and Politics in Malawi.

3. OnStage Blog

OnStage Blog says it’s “on scene. On point. In your community.”

The site features reviews, observations, and posts about the acting life and backstage life.

Posts I enjoyed include What is Your Favorite Longest Running Broadway Musical?, What Side Hustles are Good for Actors?, and The Devil Wears Prada … The Musical! That’s All …

4. American Theatre

American Theatre is a magazine dedicated to theatre. It was founded in 1984. It has a site that covers news (awards, entrances/exits, and seasons) and features about topics like production, diversity, and theatre for young audiences.

American Theatre covers theatrical trends and events, stage artists of every stripe, and economic and legislative developments affecting the arts,” the site says. “Its main purview is America’s wide-ranging network of professional, not-for-profit theatres — commercial, amateur or university theatre is less frequently covered — and the magazine does not review productions (but does review theatre-related books).”

Stories to read right now: New York City’s Two-Way Street, 6 Theatre Workers You Should Know, and La Jolla Playhouse to Commission UCSD MFA Playwrights.

  1. I love going to musical theatre. I do not go to musical theatre much- but I am glad I go at least once a year. I already have seen two musicals this year- Fiddler on the Roof and Miss Saigon. There are two more musicals I hope to catch this year- Aladdin and Les Mis.

    My blog is mostly about musical theatre, but also talks about other things to show I am not just a musical theatre fanatic.
