Books

"Up-To-Date Theatricals' monthly publications are the best source of current, comprehensive, quality information and industry contacts for the NYC and Tri-State markets. Their organized format gets you the info quickly and without all the added fluff."
- Allen Hubby, VP/Owner, the Drama Book Shop
With mailing cost rising and email communication growing, we wanted to help performers be more specific with their targeted approach to pursuing a performance career and decided it was time to put this information into our own monthly publications. Our 3 new talent industry source books, NYC Agent Directory, NYC Personal Manager Directory and NYC Casting Directors, have quickly become the best career enhancing, theatrical guides for the New York and Tri-State area markets. Our goal with these 3 industry guides is to give the performing artists another tool that makes the ongoing pursuit of a Showbiz career easier. We are proud to continue to work as performers ourselves and to be a source of creative service to the many artists that we have worked with since 1988.

The Performing Artist Guide to Money, Taxes & Success    $25.00

The Performing Artist Guide to Money, Taxes & Success is an easy system for keeping essential business records for artists. While written with theatre artists in mind (performers, directors, writers, musicians, producers, designers, costumers, stage hands, etc.), this guide is also helpful for other artists (painters, fine artists, graphic designers, etc.) We have set out to not only give tax and record keeping guidelines but to also provide a holistic approach to seeing yourself as the CEO of your career. Artists are not in the habit of keeping daily or even weekly records and too often their record keeping consists of shopping bags full of receipts, papers and stubs. If you, though, embrace the notion of creatively viewing your artist career as a business, it can surprisingly also enhance your performance success.
