MTIShowspace: theatre social network

MTI Showspace is accepting requests now to be a part of it's launch in January 09. It's a social network (yes another one), but it's (a) for theatre people and (b) being produced by Music Theatre International, a Manhattan-based licensing company. If you join now, you'll "have the opportunity to use the site in its infant form and will be integral to the formation of this incredibly useful resource." The company says it will be a place to "share photos, videos, and theatre buzz" and "a resource for theatrical tips, tricks, advice and information."
