Back Stage West buys Drama-Logue

New moniker: Back Stage West/Drama-Logue

Back Stage West, the Los Angeles version of the performers trade weekly, has acquired its competitor, Drama-Logue.

Back Stage West editor Rob Kendt will continue to oversee the publication, which takes over the circulation and assets of Drama-Logue and will now be called Back Stage West/Drama-Logue. Back Stage West is owned by BPI Communications.

The 26-year-old Drama-Logue was originally modeled on Gotham’s Back Stage, which didn’t begin its West Coast edition until February 1994.

Kendt said the move was inspired by the competition between the two papers for readers and advertisers. “The market was too small to support two publications,” he said.

No price was disclosed.
