From John Hauge: “My brother Stephen and I created the TrueTheatergoer.com website in October 2011 to promote theater in Washington, DC and on Broadway by providing an enriching collection of information on current shows and composite audience reviews and ratings of these shows. Our hope is to further develop a community excited about theater and willing to write short comments of shows so others can benefit from their experiences.”

The Theater Facts 2012 report details the following achievements for the 1,782 theaters in the U.S. not-for-profit professional theater field (extrapolating data from 178 theaters participating in the survey):

1) Attracted 36.7 million audience members to 211,000 performances of 18,500 productions, including nearly 1.8 million subscribers to a theater season.

2) Contributed nearly $2 billion to the economy in payments for goods and services, and hired 123,000 people — artists (63%), production/technical staff (24%) and administrators (13%). (The economic impact is higher as this figure does not include restaurants, parking, babysitters, etc.)

3) Received 52% of their income from earned sources and 48% from contributions.

4) Experienced a +2% change in unrestricted net assets, which encompasses changes in all unrestricted funds, chiefly earnings and contributions less expenses.
