About STage Write Software
Stage Write Software, a division of Open Jar Productions, is dedicated to the creation of software and digital solutions for the entertainment community, including Broadway shows and special events around the world. Launched in 2012, Stage Write Software is being used by the industry's top professionals, including nearly 50,000 users worldwide.
WHAT'S SO REVOLUTIONARY ABOUT STAGE WRITE?
Any stage manager, director or choreographer will attest that the process of documenting staging and choreography is a tedious process. Until Stage Write, there was no consistent method available except that of hand-drawn charts (which are unappealing, often inaccurate and difficult to share). With this unique digital method the user only has to enter the stage dimensions ONE TIME, create an actor icon ONE TIME, and then easily drag the performer icons into the desired position. This method saves thousands of HOURS of time and the final product is clean and easy-to-share, and exists on your mobile device for easy reference.
BROADWAY GOES GREEN
In addition to the timesaving value of Stage Write, there is a huge environmental and economic advantage to using the app. Most musicals and productions contain thousands of pages of spacing charts, scripts and movement notes, which need to be shared by others in the production (lighting designers, stage managers, dance captains, swings). Having these charts in a digital form through use of this app makes it possible to save thousands of dollars in printing and copying, and also making Stage Write the key to ensuring the theatre community effectively reduces its carbon footprint.
