As a result of this partnership, venues now have the opportunity to sell tickets via the Stagedoor app. Several leading Off West End venues have already signed up to sell face value tickets to Stagedoor’s fast-growing community of users who use the app to decide what to see.
Stagedoor is the first theatre app of its kind. It brings together discovery, social engagement and seamless booking, from the West End to the Fringe. Stagedoor creates personalised recommendations for each user based on individual theatres and artists they like, and helps people discover new types of theatre based on what their friends and other users are excited about. Stagedoor is already home to a community of 28,000 theatre-lovers who use it to buy tickets and share their experiences with friends and other theatre-lovers.
With over 1,000 current or upcoming London shows on the app, Stagedoor is the most comprehensive and innovative guide to theatre in London. Now, thanks to the partnership with LTD, it is poised to become the most comprehensive booking platform.
Michael Hadjijoseph, Co-founder & CEO of Stagedoor said:
“This is a very exciting time in theatre. Venues are embracing the opportunities offered by new technology to access new audiences; and increasingly sophisticated and nimble box office systems, like Spektrix, are making this transformation possible.
“LTD has been at the forefront of ticketing technology for almost two decades and we are delighted to be working with them to better connect people with theatre they love.”
Francis Hellyer, CEO of London Theatre Direct added:
“We’re huge fans of Stagedoor. Michael and his team are inventive, passionate and driven and the Stagedoor app is a brilliant example of using social proof and social media well. We’ve been working closely with the Stagedoor team for many months and so we’re delighted to agree an exclusive partnership. If you love theatre, you’ll love Stagedoor.”
