So You Love Submissions Only ...

    Santino Fontana and Kate Wetherhead
Have you checked out the hilarious web series Submissions Only yet?

Created by Kate Wetherhead and Andrew Keenan-Bolger, this series about a casting director (Colin Hanlon), his aspiring actress bestie (Wetherhead) and the travails of New York stage life features hilarious theater jokes and tons of fabulous cameos.  It's wildly addictive and funny.

Looking for more online shows starring wildly talented theater folks?  The New York Times has a handy guide in their recent article:   If You Can’t Get Onstage, Go Online, which features enough do-it-yourself web series to keep you glued to your computer for weeks.

And in case you thought our local theater scene wasn't up on this fun trend, check out Theater People: A Drama About the People Behind the Drama, written, directed and produced by Matthew G. Anderson and starring a host of local actors and many faces that are well-known to Twin Cities theatergoers.   A complete list of cast members can be found on the website.  Here's looking forward to a new season of this fun series!
