Michael Sterling & Associates - An Entertainment Public Relations and Production Co.
Founded in 1980 by entrepreneur Michael Sterling, MS&A is most distinguished for its involvement in and representation of not only the live performing arts in Los Angeles, but throughout Southern California.   MS&A is also known for maintaining a small, select group of clients  at any one time.  As a result, the company is able to provide clients with the amount of time and energy necessary to meet their needs and expectations, as well as a variety of services not offered by any other such company.  

Contrary to the operation of most other public relations and production companies, clients do not have to compete for attention as one among hundreds on a company roster.  Whether an account is of considerable size, or "one on the rise," each MS&A client is treated with the same hands-on attention and detail in creating stimulating promotions and/or productions which will generate important media publicity and support.
 
In public relations, our background is wide-ranging and not only includes Entertainment and Sports stars, but Theatre and Music, Literature, Fashion and Beauty.  We blend innovative ideas with ambitious, strategical planning, and agressive follow-up.  And, because diplomacy and courtesy are absolute in our communication skills, we are repeatedly successful in acquiring the most significant and far reaching exposure possible.  Not only have our years of experience solidified relations with top tier media in Los Angeles and New York, but a variety of media in primary and secondary cities across the United States and throughout the world.  

We  are pleased to say that MS&A  has also become a vital part of LA's cultural landscape. Whether producing and/or directing a timeless Broadway classic such asThe Sound of Music (right); Annie, an Off-Broadway spoof of Busby Berkeley movie musicals like Dames at Sea;  or a headlining cabaret concert engagement with such Broadway, television and film stars as Ramin Karimloo (right), Hal Linden, Faith Prince, Cortes Alexander, David Burnham,  Jason Graae, Ilene Graff, David Engel, Euan Morton, Lainie Kazan, Academy Award winner Richard Sherman or Rachel York..., the combination of MSA's production and public relations efforts  register as critically acclaimed, award-winning contributions to the live arts scene in Southern California.


Since 2009, Mr. Sterling has served as Host and Co-Producer for Broadway World Television (BWW TV) creating TV content and Red Carpet Coverage for many of LA's most prestigious theatre events such as Kander & Ebb's Chicago the Musical directed by Brook Shields at the legendary Hollywood Bowl in July, 2013.   Meet Brook Shields (below with Michael STerling) and the stars of Chicago (in a very exclusive back stage, rehearsal setting just prior to the show's opening at the legendary LA landmark.
