Give your music theater fans choice online

Getting your music theater soundtrack online has it's challenges. Many musical theatre projects don't even consider creating high quality commercial song soundtracks for the airwaves; and even if they do, navigating the infrastructure of online streaming services, radio, television and film is not for the faint of heart.

If your show doesn't have label affiliation you'll need to set one up with GS1-US. This can get you going on services like Spotify and only costs $30, but music theater fans use all sorts of different online streaming services.

To go to the next level we would advise that you join a PRO organization like ASCAP or BMI. Once you become a member you can register your works for a variety of additional online audio services and they'll handle the royalty distributions for you. It will also cover the bases for all your fans since there is such a wide selection of online streaming services out there.
