When you get a theater craving and all you have is your phone, these five apps can help you through it.
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.
The British complement to BroadwayWorld, this app gives you the same kind of information on theater across the pond.
You don’t have to stand in those Manhattan discount-ticket lines any more: TKTS now has an app that lets you find and purchase tickets to NYC shows at discounts of up to 50%. Bonus: it gives you access to the magazine TDF Stages.
To get psyched for curtain-up, you can browse Playwrights Quotes for gems written by everyone from Euripides and Edmond Rostand to Peter Shaffer and David Ives. An interesting variety.
Aeschylus’s Books Collection
And if you can’t make live shows, you can always read them instead. Greek tragedy, anyone?
