Did I Mention?

Theatre in Video

From our new database provider:

Theatre in Video contains more than 250 of the world’'s most important plays, together with more than 100 video documentaries, online in streaming video—more than 500 hours in all. These definitive performances, by leading actors and directors, have been painstakingly licensed from a wide range of copyright holders. They are now delivered to you over the Internet, in a revolutionary new format developed specifically for drama.

The first release of Theatre in Video will include notable productions of Incident at Vichy by Arthur Miller (1973), The Iceman Cometh, by Eugene O’Neill (1960); Awake and Sing!, by Clifford Odets (1972); Master Builder, by Henrik Ibsen (1960); Much Ado About Nothing, by William Shakespeare (1973); Six Characters in Search of an Author, by Luigi Pirandello (1976); and many others.

Performances targeted for future releases include King Lear with Orson Welles; Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman, with Lee J. Cobb; Beckett’s Happy Days, with Irene Worth; Neil Simon’s The Good Doctor, with Lee Grant and Marsha Mason; Tennessee Williams’s Eccentricities of a Nightingale, with Blythe Danner; and a long list of additional productions.
