A new website called Show Buzz Online (http://www.ShowBuzzOnline.com) promises a unique online service that will allow stage and theatre actors & crew to connect with their fans and create communities around original web content.
Show Buzz is making the interaction between performers and fans more personal and interactive. The online service aims to become a "theatre fan's ultimate hub", allowing both cast and crew to generate exciting, behind-the-scenes content and provide a "lounge" for fans to share their passion for their favorite shows. The site is also giving fans firsthand information about upcoming productions and the latest legit theatre news.
The "Show Buzz Cast" consisting of Broadway and regional theater artists, email their diary entries and/or leave voice mail messages for fans that are converted to streaming audio and available as MP3 downloads on the site. The home page has a featured video and a featured audio section.
Show Buzz will soon also provide fans and show "evangelists" a chance to connect and create communities together. Users will create their own show blogs, create internet groups around specific productions, upload their favorite show related photos, join in discussion forums and more.
The site was built and maintained by Site Optimized, a leading internet and search marketing firm. Show Buzz will benefit from Site Optimized's experience in reaching out to bloggers and active online participants and driving large volumes of web traffic.
"When I was a lead web producer in Los Angeles with WhatsHotNow, I got a crash course in entertainment e-commerce by running web stores for MTV, ABC Television, Playboy Enterprises and Comedy Central" says Doug Motel, award-winning playwright and founder of Site Optimized. "I saw firsthand how fanatical some people can be about their favorite entertainment, and how much they love to support and evangelize on behalf of the shows they treasure. Also with the advent of reality TV, audiences have shown a huge interest in the backstage workings of an artist's life."
From Broadway to local stage performances, Show Buzz promises a unique experience for both performers and their fans alike to connect online and share unique content that will make attending in the theater a more personal and memorable experience.
