A spokesperson for BroadwayHD has confirmed that the live stream of She Loves Me will be available for viewing for one week after the June 30 live broadcast, with the purchase of either an annual subscription or a one-time rental.
She Loves Me will be available to watch live on BroadwayHD June 30 at 8 PM. Viewers who tune in to the broadcast after 8 PM will see the show as it's being performed live until curtain. For anyone who misses the live broadcast, the on-demand encore will be available for seven days.
BroadwayHD and Roundabout Theatre Company announced earlier this month that they would live stream the Tony-winning revival of She Loves Me, marking the first time ever that a Broadway show has been broadcast live. Visit broadwayhd.com/shelovesme to reserve a live-stream pass to the June 30 broadcast for $9.99; alternatively, the live broadcast is included in the purchase of an annual subscription, but not a monthly one.
BroadwayHD annual subscribers will also be able to view the She Loves Me recording once it is made available as part of the on-demand library. The broadcast will first need to be edited, which could take a number of weeks. Once included in the library, individual titles are available as two-day rentals for $7.99 for non-annual subscribers.
“We are honored to expand the reach of live theatre beyond Broadway to audiences everywhere,” said Stewart F. Lane and Bonnie Comley, co-founders of BroadwayHD, in an earlier press statement. “This has always been a dream of ours and we are happy to achieve it in less than a year since our launch. Thank you to Roundabout Theatre Company for entrusting us to bring this historic live theater event to BroadwayHD.” Past live streams include the Off-Broadway productions of Buried Child and Old Hats.
Following an extension announcement, She Loves Me is set to play through July 10 at Studio 54. The classic musical comedy began previews February 19 and officially opened March 17. The production, directed by Scott Ellis and choreographed by Warren Carlyle, stars Byron Jennings, Laura Benanti, Zachary Levi, Gavin Creel, Michael McGrath, Jane Krakowski and Tom McGowan. The revival received eight Tony nominations and won the award for Best Scenic Design.
She Loves Me tells the story of two parfumerie clerks who, unbeknownst to each other, are corresponding romantically as anonymous pen pals. She Loves Me features a book by Joe Masteroff, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick and music by Jerry Bock, based on a play by Miklos Laszlo.
“As a nonprofit institution, this is an incredible opportunity for us to share Scott Ellis’s new Broadway production beyond our subscribers, donors and other ticket buyers for our limited run at Studio 54,” said Todd Haimes, Roundabout Theatre Company’s artistic director. “This groundbreaking partnership with BroadwayHD allows us to bring She Loves Me to a large audience throughout the United States, and around the globe.” The live stream will be produced in association with Ellen M. Krass.
Tickets for She Loves Me are available by calling (212) 719-1300, online at RoundaboutTheatre.org and in person at Roundabout’s Studio 54 Box office, 254 West 54th St.
