BardALERT! (Announcing Some New Features on

There are lots of ways nowadays to find out about theatre that's going on in New York City. But it's sometimes difficult to stay on top of the particular kind of theatre that you love and cherish and care about. is here to help! Today I am announcing the BardALERT and the PlaywrightALERTS. These are constantly-updated web resources that keep you posted about the newest current and upcoming productions of works by Shakespeare (that's the BardALERT) or other groups of playwrights. Check them out.

In addition to the BardALERT, we have alerts for the following groups of plays:

These are RSS feeds, which means that you can subscribe to them using an RSS reader or your web browser software. You can also subscribe to them via email. If you're not sure how to subscribe to an RSS feed, it's explained here.

The purpose of the BardALERT and the PlaywrightALERTS is to keep you up-to-date about NYC presentations of plays by the authors you like. Please post a comment or email me to let me know what you think about this new feature on! BardALERT and PlaywrightALERTS are part of our broad initiative in 2010 to provide theatre audiences with the information they need to find the shows that interest them. I will be talking more about this initiative in upcoming nytheatre i posts.
