Tips For Streaming Live Theater From The Guys Who Did It Really Well

Earlier this week, Helen Shaw wrote that the Broadway.com stream of Jonathan Tolin’s Buyer & Cellar was “the proof-of-concept for low-budget live-capture.” So she talked to the people who made it happen — director Nic Cory, star Michael Urie, director of photography (and Urie’s partner) Ryan Spahn, digital director (and Broadway.com editor-in-chief) Paul Wontorek — about the details that really made it work (including the ones they learned the hard way). – Vulture

Here’s One Case Where Live-Streamed Theater Really Worked

Helen Shaw: “After five weeks of valiant internet productions that looked a lot like readings (even when they weren’t), Buyer & Cellar” — with Michael Urie, live from his living room, his partner as cameraman, returning to the role that kick-started his career — “is the proof-of-concept for low-budget live-capture. It turns out that even without an audience laughing and rustling, a 100-minute comedy can be funny.” – Vulture
