  1. Hi Sydney –
    Happy holidays. You emailed me over the summer about writing reviews for Center On The Aisle (www.centerontheaisle.com). I was just cleaning out my inbox, and I apologize – I dont think I responded to you. Your work is great. I’d love to have you do reviews for us — only thing, I can tell you’re quite a seasoned writer. This isn’t a paid gig – I offer reviewers the free tickets to see the show(s) in return for the post, and opportunity to have published work. You’re clearly well beyond that point! But, if you’re still interested, let me know. Also, happy to chat too as a fellow theater writer – always good to make a new connection. Besides Center On The Aisle, I write a weekly story for Huffington Post, and have done some others work for Broadway World and Playbill. So I think we travel similar paths.🙂

    Hope you enjoy the holidays, and that we might connect soon –

    Regards,
    Steve

    • Happy New Years Steve!
      Thank you for reaching out to me about my work and potentially writing for Center on the Aisle. I see that your writers cover Broadway – that’s a particular area I’m interested in featuring. Much of my writing has been focused on Off-Broadway and I am currently looking for the opportunity to move towards The Great White Way. One of my main platforms seems to be slowing down a bit, so I might be interested in picking up another. Anyways, I will definitely check out your weekly story on Huff Post! You can find my work in “Broadway Today,” a theatre guide for dummies passed out near the TKTS booth in Times Square.🙂

      Hope to talk soon!

      Take Care,

      Sydney
