Theater of the future – live from Pittsburgh | off-stage right

Theater of the future – live from Pittsburgh | off-stage right

So I've been following a fabulous blog called Off-Stage Right written by an incredibly smart and insightful theater manager, Jodi Schoenbrun Carter. Clearly, if you are reading this, you've gotten on the social media bandwagon and you realize the potential and imminent influence that it will have on our society. Let's take this post for example.

Pittsburgh Irish and Classical Theater created a completely new concept "Live and in person and live and online" in which they are going to broadcast, via the internet, live theater performances. The implications of this are huge. This expands your audience, creates lively discussion, and will revolutionize the casting process, just to name a few.

I found this article on a blog I follow, whose updates come straight to me via iGoogle in my RSS feed. It's not a blog written by some web tech, or even a journalist. It's a blog written by a theater professional. We have taken the power of communication into our own hands. I am passing it on to you, and you may pass it on to someone else. The possibilities are endless!
