BroadwayHD Is An Entertainment Game Changer For Theater Fans

Broadway HD is bringing top name shows streamed directly to you

As many of those of you know I love live theatre. It can be traveling companies, local theater groups, as well as so many fine colleges that put on some outstanding productions being done on campuses all over the country.

But Broadway remains where the best live theatre in the world is done. The big name stars, the best musicians, the most beautiful costumes and the most elaborate sets. So, when I heard of BroadwayHD a streaming video service that has revolutionized how big name plays can be streamed on demand I was ready to sign up.

On this week’s edition of Stream On I have the pleasure of talking with BroadwayHD founders Stewart Lane and Bonnie Comley about this game-changing streaming service.

The duo understands that getting the theatre to the masses is a key way to make sure the Broadway audience more accessible to all people. They want to make sure that they help to create a new generation of theatregoers, a group that is younger and more likely to bring their families or go with a group of friends to a play.

The other thing that is attractive about BroadwayHD is that it allows the viewer to watch when it is convenient to them. Plus, you not only get the best seat in the house you get the ten best seats in the house with new technology that captures the action in perfect high definition with studio quality sound.

These two have been revolutionizing theatre and they have resumes to pull it off. Here is a little background on our guests, read along while they talk in detail about BroadwayHD.

Lane is a six-time Tony award-winning producer for A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder, War Horse, Jay Johnson: The Two & Only, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Will Rogers Follies and La Cage Aux Folles, as well as an additional eight-time nominee.

In 2013 he won his first Olivier Award for Irving Berlin’s Top Hat in the West End.  Currently, he is producing the Gloria and Emilio Estefan musical biography On Your Feet and Sunset Boulevard starring Glenn Close.
