New Subscription Service Offers Live-Streaming Broadway Shows

If you can’t make it in person to see the neon lights of Broadway, there’s now another option for fans of the theater: a new subscription service is offering up on-demand, live-streaming theatrical productions. I know what you’re thinking — how will I be able to aggressively shush the annoying people talking throughout?

Two veteran Broadway producers teamed up to start BroadwayHD, Stewart F. Lane and Bonnie Comley, who have worked in the past on partnering with networks to broadcast stage performances, reports Mashable. Technology has come along way, making it easier to provide live content on-demand to audiences anywhere with an internet connection.

“The streaming thing, the whole convenience of ‘what I want when I want it,’ is just how people are conditioned to consume their entertainment nowadays,” Comley told Mashable. “It’s how the business is evolving. It’s art meets theater meets the Internet.”

Customers can choose from a monthly subscription ($14.99), a yearly membership ($169.99), or pay à la carte to watch one specific show. There will also be some free content.

I'm glad you posted this. Up and coming will be the most popular and viewed show ever on Broadway . I wish I had thought of it , " The Rise And Fall Of The American Empire " staring none other than Barack
Obama played by Al Sharpton . Read the book , it will be out shortly , written by Hillary Clinton.
