About Us

Launched in 1996, WhatsonStage is the UK’s biggest and best dedicated theatre website, ranked number 1 in the UK by Alexa and number 2 by Hitwise amongst all performing arts websites, and named one of the top 100 arts tweeters by The Times. It comprises a listings database of some 5,500-plus performances nationwide, as well as unrivalled theatre news, reviews, photos, interviews, gossip, blogs, ticket sales and offers, and lively discussion boards. The audience represents the country’s most avid theatregoing demographic available online. In addition to the website, WhatsonStage runs the WhatsOnStage Theatre Club, and hosts more than 40 live events a year to the West End’s biggest productions. The company also founded and presents the annual Awards, voted for by more than 60,000 theatregoers and now in their 13th year.
