I'm currently paying for all three, but am listing a poll in case others think I can ditch one of these and save some money! I've been considering ending my Backstage subscription for a while now. Thoughts? :mrgreen:

There's pretty much very few things on Backstage now that I can't also find on one of the other two. I like the profile system on Backstage better though.
"No wall is too high to climb." This is my idea of an original, meaningful quote. It's not my best. :D

For theatre, Backstage and Playbill are excellent for knowing when EPAs and ECCs are happening. But if you're a non-union theatre actor, then just use Playbill to find the info. For tv/film, you'll need CN/AA. I keep all three + IMDb Pro to stay up-to-date on everything though.
Just living the dream.
