Missing the theatre? Problem solved. Introducing BroadwayHD, the premier streaming service for stage to screen content. There are so many shows – contemporary and classic – and stellar performances from Broadway, the BBC, Lincoln Center and highlights from local regional theaters. And it’s so easy to navigate – their catalogue is broken down into categories from musicals, comedy and drama to Shakespeare, family-friendly and vintage.
I recently asked three-time Tony Award-winning producer Bonnie Comley, co-founder of BroadwayHD, for her top streaming recommendations. “I love everything about our Trailblazers rail. It’s a special row of content that features underrepresented voices in the theater. Women composers, playwrights, directors or LGBTQ creators get a chance to be highlighted,” said Comley. “[This month], we will showcase our mothers – good and bad! Gypsy, Falsettos, Ruthless.” Theatre fans can also check out the best of Broadway like Kinky Boots, 42nd Street, The King and I, and Cats, which Comley adds “have huge casts, amazing talent, sets, and costumes.”
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, Comley shared, “content is already in place for the next six months with shows that were already filmed…discussions are happening to ensure a steady flow of new shows for [BroadwayHD] subscribers.”
