“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 a 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.
