Tobie Stein, member of the League of Professional Theatre WomenPerforming Arts Management Educator
New York, New York USA

I am an international performing arts management educator and find inspiration in creating cross-cultural dialogues and partnerships among professional arts organizations and graduate students in nonprofit and performing arts management.

I just finished reading The Networked Nonprofit by Beth Kanter and Allison Fine. It is a sensational book about the use of social media in the nonprofit world.

I went to Emerson College in Boston, MA, and while I was a student I saved the Wilbur Theatre, a legitimate commercial theater, from being torn down. I was the youngest person to speak in front of the Boston Landmarks Commission. The cast of Wings, starring Constance Cummings, attended the hearing. The Wilbur Theatre is now a Boston landmark.
