Stage2View.com, the brand new streaming platform offering Tony and Olivier Award winning stage productions – as well as top music acts from around the world – launches today with a host of award-winning West End shows.
The first stage shows to be released on Stage2View include the critically acclaimed, Tony® and Olivier Award-winning productions of Kinky Boots and An American In Paris, as well as the recent Drury Lane production of 42nd Street, Michael Grandage’s award winning production of RED, starring Alfred Molina, and Julian Fellowes’ The Wind in the Willows: The Musical, filmed at the London Palladium.
The first set of titles are available to stream for a limited period on a pay per view basis from today, and all titles will initially be available at the introductory cost of £4.99/ US $5.99 / €5.99 for a 48 hour rental.
Co-founder of Stage2View, Austin Shaw today said:
“Whilst nothing can match the experience of live theatre, we have been fortunate to be able to film some wonderful shows over the past three years. With opportunities sadly limited for audiences to see major musicals in theatres at the moment, we believe that Stage2View will provide a welcome opportunity for audiences missing their regular visits and those who may not go that often, to see a show and remind everyone of the magic of theatre”.
Stage2View, a new venture created by Austin Shaw with Joshua Andrews and Stuart Galbraith of Kilimanjaro Theatricals, intend to make other titles available on the platform in the coming weeks, including the West End productions of From Here to Eternity, The King and I and for the family audience, Hetty Feather. They will also film new stage productions in due course.
In collaboration with Kilimanjaro, one of the UK’s leading music act promoters, Stage2View will in due course, also offer live streamed and recorded performances from top music acts from all over the world.
