Theatre is no longer as ephemeral as it once was. Company president and CEO Basil Hero and renowned music publishing executive Michael Fuchs are among the executives behind a new theatre resource, the Broadway Theatre Archive which hopes to have videotaped versions of as many as 35 legit performances available for consumers by year end.

The theatre entrepreneur and catalog-savvy music pros have financed and developed a web-based service that will digitally remaster theatrical performances originally made by PBS, New York's WNET and Los Angeles' KCET.

Thirty-five titles may be ready by the end of the year, an archive source told Playbill On-Line.

According to Broadway Theatre Archive (www.broadwayarchive.com), roughly three dozen new titles will be remastered and made available on a quarterly basis.

Right now, the following titles comprise the archive's catalog. Additional titles may be added in the future: A Case of Libel
