They will also film new stage productions in due course.
Talking about the streaming platform 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”.
It was also confirmed that 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.
Kilimanjaro Theatricals commented that, “Whilst we all hope that some theatre productions and music acts will be able to return to a form of live public performances in the UK before the end of the year, in current circumstances, we are unable to have a night out at a show and so we are delighted to offer people a night ‘in’ and be entertained at home, as we begin to share our existing library of product on Stage2View. With Stage2View offering a combination of major award winning theatre shows and top music acts, we hope to offer an exciting and wide range of performances and provide something for everyone on Stage2View.com”
