TheaterMania – We Are Theater

Many things come to mind when consumers think about the theater. If they know the show they want to see, the first is usually where to get tickets. When they long for a new experience there is the excitement of discovery. Of searching for a production that others have loved.

TheaterMania is your door to the world of Broadway and beyond. Much more than a listing site, we play a starring role in helping millions of patrons find your shows, buy seats and create memories. This is achieved through our passionate editorial team of Broadway and theater insiders, and by creating true partnerships with the thousands of organizations we serve.

When news breaks, TheaterMania shares it. When shows open, we are one of the only digital-first sites to review them, which we did throughout the pandemic too. Plus, TheaterMania showcases must-see videos, hot-button opinion pieces, an active social community and more. 

With TheaterMania, consumers are so close to Broadway and to performances across our nation that they feel like they are on stage – or backstage – themselves.

Our Editorial Voice: Informed and Impartial

Our editorial team has continued to keep in close dialogue with our audience during the pandemic and has responded by creating more of the types of content people want to see. 

New features such as our daily “Live” interview series, exclusive streaming content, consumer surveys, a Young Playwrights Festival and other multimedia experiences has continued to connect our consumers with creators.

Organizations continue to leverage the TheaterMania brand and voice to connect with this extremely engaged consumer base through our advertising and distribution programs.

A Respected, Trusted Industry Voice

Like the stars and shows it covers, TheaterMania’s editorial team often finds itself in the spotlight. Our reviews and opinions are quoted in theater promotions across online, broadcast and print media, showcasing our position as a respected industry voice.
