When you get a theater craving and all you have is your phone, these five apps can help you through it.

BroadwayWorld.com

BroadwayWorld.com is a popular online resource on the American theater scene, and this app gives you access to its wealth of information. You can get news, reviews, photos, listings, discounted tickets, and more for Broadway, off-Broadway, touring, regional, and West End shows. A convenient overview of what’s up onstage.
