Some of New York City Ballet’s top dancers are quite active on social media. Beyond Twitter, and in keeping with the beauty of a visual art form, they are Instagram shutterbugs.
My review of Broadway's "I'll Eat You Last: A Chat with Sue Mengers," the one-woman play starring Bette Midler, was published by indiewire's Thompson on Hollywood.
Copyright, union restrictions and creative license concerns are just a few of the hurdles brands face when thinking of ways to extend storylines or showcase behind-the-scenes activities through digital media.
In order to highlight what I find interesting in the digital media space, I've created a new Tumblr page.

So many iconic visuals collected in one center on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, many drawing some of Hollywood’s top filmmakers to the destination.
It's time for technology to wow us consumers again. A hashtag in the corner during Glee or awarding a GetGlue badge for watching the latest Pretty Little Liars episode -- that's just social media 101. Audiences are ready to graduate to the advanced class.
In a room full of Broadway marketers and producers, how do you sell an idea of change without a clearly defined return on investment? When it comes to TedxBroadway, it's the big idea that turns a profit, although it's not a dollar sign attached to the value, it's onboarding Broadway to the idea of thinking big.
I'm happy to report that there are plenty of organizations taking to Twitter and Facebook in hopes of keeping arts in schools. Looking to join in on the conversation? I've assembled a list of resources you (or an arts organization) can easily use to leverage social media in favor of the arts.
It would be impossible for me to keep from live blogging/tweeting the Golden Globes. So, please enjoy my random snark, Hollywood style.
Since 2011, I have been managing the social media for Live From Lincoln Center, the performing arts program airing on PBS.
