For decades, Broadway theater was pretty inaccessible to audiences that couldn’t snag tickets. But these days, technology has given everybody a chance to get in on the action, which is exactly what they’ll get when Holiday Inn, The New Irving Berlin Musical is live-streamed via BroadwayHD. The musical, which opened on Oct. 6 at Studio 54, will be captured live on 14 high-definition cameras on the evening before the show plays its final performance.
The show stars Bryce Pinkham (A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder), Lora Lee Gayer (Follies), Corbin Bleu (In the Heights), Megan Lawrence (The Pajama Game), Megan Sikora (Curtains) and Danny Rutigliano (Banana Shpeel). Holiday Inn was directed by Gordon Greenberg and choreographed by Denis Jones.
With music and lyrics from Irving Berlin, the new book written by Greenberg and Chad Hodges is based on the Academy Award-winning film Holiday Inn. It’s been engaged in a limited run on Broadway for several months, and now viewers across the country can get in on the action without leaving their couches.
The Holiday Inn live-streams on Jan. 14, 2017, at 8 p.m. EST.
