For over 50 years, Back Stage has been the most trusted place for actors to find news and casting information.

Started in December 1960 by Ira Eaker and Allen Zwerdling, Back Stage quickly became required reading for all New York City actors who came to the city to cut their teeth in the theatre. The newspaper's blue-and-red logo became as synonymous with New York actors as a class at The Actors Studio.

With the initial release of Back Stage West in Los Angeles in 1994 and the launch of in 1997, the name came to signify something greater: Back Stage is where actors nationwide connect with the greater performance community.

Back Stage is owned by Prometheus Global Media, whose other entertainment and media publications includes The Hollywood Reporter, Billboard, Adweek and Call Sheet.
