Sometimes a trip to New York City isn’t in the cards for theater fans. Fortunately, BroadwayHD brings the best of live theater right into your living room. These three titles have been added to BroadwayHD’s on-demand library:
The Woodsman (2016) BroadwayHD captured a live performance of Off-Broadway’s The Woodsman on May 28, 2016. Based on the beloved writings of L. Frank Baum, The Woodsman, is an imaginative retelling of the origins of Oz’s Tin Man, the woman he loved, and the witch that would stop at nothing to keep them apart. Through spectacular life-size puppetry and original music, the ensemble of Strangemen & Co. presents an inventive take on one of America’s original fairy tales. The Woodsman stars creator, director, designer, and puppeteer James Ortiz as Nick Chopper, the Woodsman.
Buried Child (2016) BroadwayHD streamed Sam Shepard’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Buried Child live on March 30, 2016 from Off-Broadway’s The New Group at The Pershing Square Signature Center. This critically-acclaimed theatrical production is directed by Scott Elliott and stars Taissa Farmiga, Ed Harris, Amy Madigan, Larry Pine, Rich Sommer, Paul Sparks and Nat Wolff. This wildly poetic and cuttingly funny take on the American family drama gleefully pulls apart the threadbare deluded visions of our families and our homes.
Old Hats (2016) BroadwayHD presented a live stream of Signature Theatre’s Old Hats, on April 2, 2016, at The Pershing Square Signature Center. Old Hats is created and performed by Bill Irwin and David Shiner. Music and lyrics by and featuring Shaina Taub.
