“Theatre is all about connectivity. Broadway fans are hungry for exciting, insider theatre-related content and engagement during this uncertain time,” Berinstein said in a statement. “BPN and Broadway Together are proud to create innovative content that gives theatre fans interactive, informative, fun and uplifting ways to connect from home. We are also committed to supporting our community with Actor's Fund and BC/EFA COVID-19 Emergency Fund initiatives.”
In addition to more than 40 podcasts, including new offerings like The Hang With Ramin Karimloo and Playbill’s Today in Theatre History, Broadway Together aims to provide theatrelovers with interactive content during this time of the theatre shutdown. From BPN’s Cosplay in Quarantine to the Dreamcast Competition to the weekly poll, the Network helps fill the current void.
