Streaming Musicals will launch October 3 with Paul Gordon's musical Emma. The debut production will mark the launch of the new digital platform dedicated to streaming shows that have been captured on a soundstage or theatrical stage (without an audience present) and filmed specifically for the screen.
Emma, which features book, music, and lyrics by Gordon, was filmed this past spring at the Westside Theatre Off-Broadway. Kent Nicholson directed for the stage, and Tim Kashani directed for film.
The filmed production will be available for purchase for $19.99 and to rent for $7.99 at StreamingMusicals.com. No subscription is necessary.
Emma, which is based on Jane Austen's classic novel, stars Kelli Barrett (Broadway’s Doctor Zhivago, Wicked) as the titular character, along with Caitlin Brooke, Lauren "Coco" Cohn, Adam Daveline, Richert Easley, Timothy Gulan, Brian Herndon, Pamela Winslow Kashani, Dani Marcus, Don Richard, Sharon Rietkerk, and Will Reynolds.
Emma is produced by Streaming Musicals, Apples and Oranges Studios, Triptyk Studios, Tom D'Angora, and Emma Market Development LLC.
The creative team includes Alice Brooks (director of photography), Dara Wishingrad (production designer), Ally Rice (editor), Brad Haak (music supervisor and director), Kara Branch (costume designer), Benjamin Weill (lighting designer), Seth Huling (sound designer), and Wendy Seyb (choreographer).
