I always look at The Season Overview for the best and most frequent regional theater updates. And I always remind actors that the Overivew has the websites and seasons for the top New York Theatres as well.

I love The Season Overview. I teach college theatre kids and find it very helpful in showing them the seasons and casting across the country. I often make assignments based on The Overview. For example, I assign regions and ask them to create audition tour opportunities for themselves. I’ve been buying it for years, both for myself and for my students. There are very few more effective tools.

It is a great tool to help my students grasp the breadth of the work being done in the state, in the region and in the country at a glance. It saves us time and let’s us look at a broad spectrum quickly. As a professor, it allows me to keep a pulse on what’s being done around the United States, to prepare playwrighting classes and acting classes.
The Season Overview has long been an invaluable resource, empowering performers as we organize our efforts toward employment in the sprawling landscape of the nation’s regional theatre. No matter what stage we are at in our careers, actors more than ever have to be proactive in making professional contacts and being as informed about the work being developed and the work being done: and the folks who are doing it. The Season Overview is a one stop shop that gives us the tools to do just that.
