The Stage launches digital edition
The weekly theatre newspaper The Stage has launched a growing archive of fully searchable issues in partnership with digital publishing experts Exact Editions
Ellie Austin scored a job at Immediate Media as a Features Writer for Radio Times after graduating from the Magazine Journalism MA course at City University. Here she talks about working in the fast-paced world of a major weekly magazine and the power of a good coffee.
The new cutting-edge digital edition, which spans a two-year period, is accessible cross-platform at the touch of a button on web, iOS and Android.
First established in 1880, The Stage is an essential resource for actors and performers, backstage workers, creative teams and those in training and education. Each issue is brimming with breaking news, cast announcements, star-studded interviews and reviews. The great breadth of its content renders it a must-read for anyone with an involvement or interest in the performing arts industry.
The innovative features of the new digital archive make it a sleek tool for personal use as well as research purposes in an institutional or professional setting. The platform facilitates a seamless browsing experience and advanced functionalities, namely the ability to share and cite each and every news piece or feature from the publication.
The Stage is available in the Exact Editions institutional and individual shops here:
Head of Marketing Rachel Scott said: “We believe the new digital edition will serve as an excellent resource for professionals and enthusiasts around the world, especially given its fully-searchable nature. Users can now delve in to a treasure trove of over 75 issues’ worth of content and track the publication’s coverage of breaking theatre news as it happened.”
Managing Director of Exact Editions, Daryl Rayner, commented: “We’re delighted to have such a well-respected name as the The Stage on board; the two-year archive will provide many with bountiful knowledge from the world of performing arts.”
