How I get my theater news.
Tom has worked in a lot of areas in the entertainment industry over the last 25+ years, from marketing to producing to fundraising and so on. He’s an incredibly dedicated believer in spreading ideas and information in order to encourage education, which by its nature encourages change.
Tom runs a news clipping service called “You’ve Cott Mail,” where he serves up a handful of the day’s most interesting arts related articles from publications, blogs, newsletters, etc. from around the globe.
It was in a recent edition of “You’ve Cott Mail” that I discovered the article that I blogged about yesterday, hence the props due to Tom.
If you’re not signed up on Tom’s list, visit his site and click on the link on the left for YCM. You’ll be glad you did. “You’ve Cott Mail” is a like a vegetable that tastes like french fries. It’s oh-so-good for you and should be consumed daily, but it also tastes great going down.
And if you’re looking for more than a handful of the day’s articles, then make sure you bookmark supersite, www.BroadwayStars.com, started by one of the original theater bloggers, James Marino. All of the news that’s fit to type is on that site. I refresh the page about 30 times a day looking for the latest news.
Consuming news in the 21st century is not like it used to be when you had one paper, or one TV channel. The best news sources are like giant buffets, serving up dishes of all different types and temperatures from all over the world (e.g. HuffPo).
“You’ve Cott Mail” and BroadwayStars are the two of the best buffets in town. And I gorge myself at both every day.
