Tinc Backstage, New Labor and Payroll Solution from Tinc Design & Productions, Launches for Off-Broadway Theater Companies

Managers of Off-Broadway theater companies are making their lives less stressful by taking advantage of Tinc Backstage, a new, full-service labor and payroll solution from Tinc Design & Productions.

“Payroll is normally a huge undertaking for these companies, and Tinc Backstage takes that burden off their plate,” says Tinc cofounder Ryan Kirk. “Tinc Backstage books all their staffing needs — every type of freelancer and supervisor they require – and handles all the payroll checks, insurance payments and taxes. In return, we send the theater company just one bill for those services – it couldn’t be easier.

“Most theater companies don’t start with the intention of spending as much time and energy as they do on all aspects of payroll,” he points out. “Tinc Backstage saves them time and energy so they can concentrate on doing what they do best – making great theater.”

Kirk notes that conventional payroll companies tend to be expensive and don’t understand the theater industry. But Tinc Backstage was created by theater people for theater people. “We launched Tinc Backstage to fill our own needs in the event world when the two big, traditional payroll companies clearly just didn’t get it,” he reminisces. “Now the Off-Broadway market can take advantage of our incredible resources and people at affordable prices.”

Tinc Backstage goes together with Tinc Tuesdays, a monthly networking and continuing education program for industry freelancers. “We’re not just hiring labor and paying lip service to things like continuing education and workplace safety,” continues Kirk, “We’re committed to helping industry freelancers grow, learn, and network through the Tinc Tuesday program.” The eleven month old Tinc Tuesday effort has held classes on electrical safety, taxes, CPR training, and several other industry topics.

Blue Man Group is one of the first theater companies to tap Tinc Backstage for the additional labor it requires for commercial shoots and tour video content. Also, the First Irish Theatre Festival closing at 59E59 used Tinc Backstage to mount their inaugural productions. “Tinc has provided superb technical management and installation for every project I do,” say Maruti Evans, a New York based Lighting Designer. “Their detailed preparation and reliability are a must for any theatrical event.”
