If there is one thing we love at Camp Broadway, it’s Twitter. From live chats to bloggers tweeting each other back and forth, we love social media. One topic that constantly floods my Twitter feed is, of course, Broadway. Whether you’re Twitter-obsessed or just logging in, here are some accounts to follow in order to start your Broadway connections.
Many popular Broadway sites have their own Twitters; like Broadway.com (@broadwaycom), Broadway World (@broadwayworld), and Broadway Spotted (@BroadwaySpotted) who actually started on Twitter. You can also find Playbill (@playbill), Broadway Buzz (@BroadwayBuzz), and Broadway Report (@BroadwayReport1) for up to date Broadway news.
Broadway U (@BroadwayU) gives students various types of training over Skype, from voice to acting. @BroadwayBasics also gives lessons, but in the stage management field. @OffBroadwayNYC is your major source for all news about Off-Broadway shows. @nytimestheater gives reviews for Broadway shows from the New York Times. For all your touring information, check Broadway Across America (@BwayAmerica), and also check out @54Below for all of their amazing performances at Broadway’s hottest hangout.
Charity-wise you have to check out Broadway Cares (@BCEFA) and Broadway Impact (@BroadwayImpact) to keep up to date with all the work they do for the Broadway community.
@BroadwayGirlNYC gives great advice on not only what shows to see in New York, but also great spots to eat and shop. Great account to get your way around your trip to NYC.
There are many important people to follow in the Broadway world, like Editor- in-Chief of Broadway.com Paul Wontorek (@PaulWontorek). Also producer Ken Davenport (@kendavenport) and president of Jujamcyn Theaters Jordan Roth (@Jordan_Roth) give insight on their experiences in the theater business.
Composers Lin Manuel Miranda and Scott Alan also keep the Twitter world entertained with their feeds. @Lin_Manuel gives us #HaikuMonday while @ScottAlanNet shares his opinions and musical knowledge with his great sense of humor.
