Following the success of the She Loves Me live stream last year, Roundabout Theatre Company and BroadwayHD have teamed up for a second time to live stream the Broadway production of Holiday Inn, The New Irving Berlin Musical at Studio 54. The January 14 performance is being captured live on 14 high-definition cameras and available to watch on BroadwayHD.com at 8 PM ET.
BroadwayHD monthly and annual subscribers worldwide are also able to watch the Holiday Inn live stream on Chromecast and BroadwayHD’s Roku, Apple TV, iPad, and iPhone apps.
The live streaming service, which launched in 2015, made history last summer with the first-ever live stream of a Broadway show—She Loves Me. Following the success of the capture, the theatre and BroadwayHD are partnering together once again.
In addition to exclusive live-streamed content, BroadwayHD offers subscribers unlimited access to an on-demand library of over 160 theatre productions. Following the live stream, the captured Holiday Inn footage will be edited and made available to subscribers as part of this catalogue.
Holiday Inn, which began previews on Broadway September 1, 2016, and officially opened October 6, stars Bryce Pinkham, Danny Rutigliano, Megan Lawrence, Megan Sikora, Corbin Bleu, and Lora Lee Gayer. The new musical features music and lyrics by Irving Berlin and a book by Gordon Greenberg and Chad Hodge, inspired by the 1942 film.
The Broadway production is directed by Greenberg, with choreography by Denis Jones, and is scheduled to close January 15—just a day after the live stream.
Holiday Inn features over 20 classic songs from the Berlin catalogue, including “Steppin’ Out With My Baby,” “Shaking the Blues Away,” “Easter Parade,” “Cheek to Cheek” and “Heatwave.” It tells the story of Jim, who leaves the bright lights of show business for the peace and quiet of a Connecticut farmhouse.
The cast also includes Malik Akil, Will Burton, Barry Busby, Darien Crago, Caley Crawford, Jenifer Foote, Morgan Gao, Matt Meigs, Shina Ann Morris, Catherine Ricafort, Drew Redington, Amanda Rose, Jonalyn Saxer, Parker Slaybaugh, Samantha Sturm, Amy Van Norstrand, Travis Ward-Osborne, Paige Williams, Victor Wisehart, Kevin Worley, and Borris York.
The Holiday Inn live stream is produced in association with Thirteen Productions LLC and Universal Stage Productions, and directed for the screen by David Horn.
