IATSE and DGA Release Statement Regarding the Joint Resolution to Rescind the FCC Order on Restoring Internet Freedom

Stage Directions

Internet streaming is fast becoming the primary way consumers enjoy the audiovisual works that our members create, and on which our livelihoods depend. As a result, we believe that no company should be able to block, throttle, or otherwise limit consumer access to lawful, online sources of those creative works. Similarly, no company should be able to block, throttle, or discriminate against lawful distributors attempting to provide creative works to internet consumers.

Theatre Projects Announces New Office in Denver

Stage Directions

Theatre Projects announces that on June 1 they’re opening a second U.S. office in Denver. Wanting to be more easily available to their clients in the western and mid-western U.S., they looked at locations from Seattle to Austin. And they loved the central-ness of Denver. It’s only a few hours by plane to Los Angeles, Portland, Minneapolis, Dallas, Chicago, and Atlanta. It’s also one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S. and ranked among the best places to live in the country.
