FIRST-TIME PRODUCER

“Thanks in large part to Plays411, we were near capacity or sold out for most of our performances. Do I recommend Plays411? Yes, with great enthusiasm. Will I use Plays411 again? Absolutely!”

In February 2006, my brand new non-profit production company, The Lyric Theatre Foundation, embarked on its first show, I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change, opening at the Hudson Mainstage in Hollywood.

We are actors, singers and directors and we were clueless. Thank goodness for Plays411 and its experienced, knowledgeable, hard working and caring staff.

They set up a reservation system consisting of our own website, which they designed, and our own phone number, recording the greeting and instructions and alerting callers to sold out performances, discounts and comps. They got our insurance, they printed our postcard and did a target mailing of 1,000, did the design and printing of our program, printed and laminated our marquee, ordered print and online ads and got reviewers to the show.

They solved problems we created and patiently walked us through every step. Thanks in large part to Plays411, we were near capacity or sold out for most of our performances. Do I recommend Plays411? Yes, with great enthusiasm. Will I use Plays411 again? Absolutely!

TICKETING AND PROMOTION

  “The first week that I hooked up with www.Plays411.com, our house doubled. That was three weeks ago. Our houses have tripled since then. We had two reviewers in the first week”

The numbers say it all. The first week that I hooked up with www.Plays411.com, our house doubled. That was three weeks ago. Our houses have tripled since then. We had two reviewers in the first week (including the LA Weekly). We had another in week two. I don't know about you, but for promotional purposes, I simply could ask for nothing more.

The personal service and at-my-fingertips contact is amazing. I asked a lot of questions. I got immediate, detailed answers. The accessibility makes the service extremely special. I am not too proud to say that owe a lot of my show's ever-growing success to Plays411.

“… our ticket sales were in good hands … The system is extremely easy to use … I highly recommend Plays411 to anyone with ticket sales and marketing needs.”

“From the moment I spoke with Leigh I knew our ticket sales were in good hands. Plays411 definitely attributed to the success of our sold-out event. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and was always there to assist when any questions arose. The system is extremely easy to use and Sandra makes sure you completely understand all the options you have when using Plays411. I highly recommend Plays411 to anyone with ticket sales and marketing needs.”

“I had an absolutely fantastic experience with Plays411. We were sold out way in advance for every one of our shows. When we added shows, Plays411 contacted a wait-list they had created, so we sold out right away for those also. I would highly, highly recommend Plays411 to any show in town.”

PRODUCTION SERVICES

“Plays411 serves as a valuable support system for the myriad behind-the-scenes tasks that are vital to the success of the challenging and magical enterprise of producing live theater. ”

“Plays411 provides a wonderfully professional and courteous staff to assist with the stressful and often overwhelming logistics of staging a production. The ticket reservation services, both over the phone and on the Web, and box office staff made my life as producer so much easier. I can't imagine how we would have kept track of paying customers and complimentary guests without 411's services. The Web site definitely contributed an air of professionalism and flair to our publicity efforts. All in all, Plays411 serves as a valuable support system for the myriad behind-the-scenes tasks that are vital to the success of the challenging and magical enterprise of producing live theater. ”

“… email blasts … helping to secure a new theater … postcard printing and mailings … getting press to come see shows … Plays411 is the everything-you-need-to-make-your-show-a-hit shop! ”

I highly recommend Plays411 and will use their many services on future productions. With the Plays411 ticket agency handling reservation I did not have to worry about that end of things at all, but their other services were just as valuable to me as a producer – from email blasts to helping to secure a new theater when it was necessary for my show to move.

They helped with postcard printing and mailings, getting press to come see shows, and helped me come up with creative solutions to the many challenges of producing a play.
The Plays411 staff went above and beyond my expectations.

I knew I had a great show, but what good does that do me if no one else knows it even exists. Thankfully, because of Plays411 just about everyone in LA knows about my show, and as we continue to have sold-out houses I think everyone in LA may come to see the show before we are done.

Plays411 is the everything-you-need-to-make-your-show-a-hit shop!

“PR4Plays has been a joy to work with. We hired Sandra Kuker and her team at the 11th hour and they took the ball and ran with it and we got results!" From guiding us through the press release process to follow-up, our publicity project has been well run. Our opening night will be a success due to the overwhelming response from media, thanks to PR4Plays. You may choose packages and programs based on any budget and they're always ready to answer any questions. They've even made the online process easy for us, by taking over when we couldn't. We would recommend PR4Plays to anyone who wants REAL PUBLICITY and promotion for their plays. PR4PLAYS did an amazing job!”
