Broadway and CA Community Theatre
Inspired by the article 'You Can Now Stream Broadway Shows Online Like Netflix,' we asked about California community theatre and the influence of Broadway.
BroadwayHD is an online streaming service on a mission to promote and preserve live theatre, extending the reach of Broadway and Broadway caliber shows to anyone, anywhere. Founded by Broadway producers Stewart F. Lane and Bonnie Comley, BroadwayHD is capturing and then transporting the magic of performance from the stage to your screen—so if you can’t get to Broadway, get to BroadwayHD.
Are you familiar with the streaming service, Broadway HD?
Do you see tours when they come to CA?
Do you look to Broadway shows to inform
or inspire your own CA Community Theatre season?
Will you use this new service, BroadwayHD for its convenience, as we are located so far from NYC?
"To an extent, we do watch the trends on Broadway, but we mostly focus on what our guests want from our theater."
What Cities Do You Travel to for Tours?
I am assuming the royalty fees would be too much for our young theater at this time.
Seeing the show is so much better than reading it.
I look to them because my patrons and the actors in my area are aware of them. I have to stay reasonably current or I will not know what they are pinning for!
Mostly to ascertain if it is technically possible to do them
Seeing what is now or might be available for future productions
