Theatre In Video contains more than 250 definitive performances of the world's leading plays, together with more than 100 film documentaries, online in streaming video - more than 500 hours in all, representing hundreds of leading playwrights, actors and directors.
From the most important productions of Shakespeare to rare in-depth
footage focusing on the work of Samuel Beckett, Theatre in Video, when
complete, will offer more than 500 hours of online streaming video,
available electronically for the first time. With live television
broadcasts of New York productions from the 50s, revivals of classic
works and experimental performances from the 60s and 70s, as well as
important contemporary performances, Theatre in Video covers a wide
range of 20th century theatre history. Unlike Hollywood adaptations,
these are the actual original productions, captured and recorded while
performed for a live theatre audience.
