Lincoln Center to stream collection of Broadway productions globally
Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts will stream Broadway musicals filmed at Lincoln Center Theater next month, it has been announced. These broadcasts will be part of a 'Broadway Friday' series and made available to a global audience via their YouTube channel, with shows including Carousel and performances by Nathan Lane.
Three productions have been confirmed so far, with additional Broadway shows to be announced.
Performed at Lincoln Center Theater in 2013, the staged concert version of Carousel is the first production in the series. A star-studded cast including Kelli O'Hara, Nathan Gunn and Jessie Mueller feature in the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical revival, with songs including "If I Loved You" and "You'll Never Walk Alone". Carousel is available to watch from 5th June at 8:00pm EDT (6th June 00:00 BST).
Nathan Lane stars as Chauncey Miles in Douglas Carter Beane's The Nance, which premiered at Broadway's Lyceum Theatre in 2013. Exploring the secretive gay world of 1930s New York, the production went on to win three Tony Awards. In a review for NewYorkTheatreGuide.com, the play is referred to as "a fine, fine production of a tale we would rather not remember." The Nance is available to watch from 12th June at 8:00pm EDT (13th June 00:00 BST).
Tony Award-winners Santino Fontana, Andrea Martin and Tony Shalhoub star in James Lapine's play Act One. Based on Moss Hart's autobiography of the same name, the Tony Award-nominated play ran for three months at the Vivian Beaumont Theater in the Lincoln Center. In a review for NewYorkTheatreGuide.com, Tulis McCall said: "There are some seriously wonderful performances going on over at the Vivian Beaumont... Based on the autobiography of Moss Hart [it] is not only an homage to theatre, it is a temporary harbor for some very good actors." Act One is available to watch from 19th June at 8:00pm EDT (20th June 00:00 BST).
