www disneyonbroadway comFor Hyperion Theatricals (Disney Theatrical Productions) in NYC, I developed and implemented a launch campaign for Disney on Broadway for Beauty and the Beast, Elton John & Tim Rice’s AIDA and The Lion King featuring their first Disney on Broadway website (, around-the-world contests and extensive guerrilla marketing to supplement their traditional marketing efforts.

The Broadway theatre supersite Buy Broadway OnlineAs Founder and CEO of and  The pioneer in moving the Broadway industry onto the internet. The theatre press branded me as “Toby is the man pushing theatre, kicking and screaming, into cyberspace.” What started in 1989 as a Broadway industry service called ShowCall via dialup BBS for members of the League of American Theatre Producers evolved onto the world wide web in the early 90’s, and shortly after this, the vast majority of Broadway shows (starting with my production of Victor/Victoria) and theatrical organizations followed. The “Super site of Broadway” became a publicly traded company, prior to my re-branding it as at the Minskoff Theatre.

The global theater supersite theatre.comDescribed by Variety Magazine as a “marketing powerhouse“, it was the single largest theatre community in the world with over 180,000 active members (in the 1990’s this was massive). From buying official Broadway tickets and souvenirs, providing detailed global show listings, interactive show study & educational guides, live streaming shows and events (including many Opening Nights live broadcasts), industry news from major theatre journalists, pictures and videos, games, messaging directly to Broadway cast’s backstage or even licensing a musical, offered it all in a single, easy-to-use interface to theatregoers globally.
