Show-Score New Jersey is the first extension of Show-Score.com, the popular fan site for New York City shows. Under the leadership of newly-appointed CEO, Deeksha Gaur, Show-Score has partnered with New Jersey Theatre Alliance to cover all professional theatre companies in New Jersey, it was announced today. To celebrate this first expansion, Show-Score and the New Jersey Theatre Alliance will host a contest to give away $1,000 worth of tickets to professional New Jersey theatre.
To enter to win tickets and to explore everything this site has to offer to theatre fans, the public can visit www.show-score.com/nj.
Show-Score.com helps audiences discover shows they’ll love by simplifying the theatre landscape, with comprehensive show listings, useful categories that highlight new shows that are getting buzz, direct links to ticket deals from a variety of outlets, and helpful reviews from its vibrant member community as well as critics from major publications.
“Over the last few years, the Alliance’s marketing committee has consistently identified the decline in arts coverage as one of the biggest issues threatening the theatre ecosystem,” said New Jersey Theatre Alliance Executive Director John McEwen. “Show-Score’s ability to harness word of mouth and build community for theatre struck us as an intriguing and important model that will help drive new audiences to our professional theatres.”
Added Show-Score CEO Deeksha Gaur: “We’re thrilled to be launching this pilot partnership with the New Jersey Theatre Alliance. It’s very exciting to work with a partner that is committed to creating new models for audience engagement, particularly in such a challenging climate. We look forward to helping New Jersey audiences discover the highest caliber of theatre right in their own backyards, and helping shows and institutions raise their profile as a result.”
If this announcement leaves you wishing Show-Score would bring its services to the Washington DC area, you aren’t alone. DC Theatre Scene has been campaigning with Show-Score nearly since its inception four years ago to bring its services to theatre fans in our area.
And it seems as though our campaigning may pay off. Watch this space for more details.
