MCC Theater announce new streaming service of virtual content
Their service will include digital events, performances and conversations.
Continuing the trend of livestreamed performances, MCC Theater have announced their own streaming platform. Titled "MCC On Demand", audiences will be able to watch a catalogue of content performed at MCC Theater, which is set to launch this Wednesday (October 28).
Will Cantler, co-artistic director of MCC Theater said: “We are excited to continue developing, exploring and delivering new facets of digital theater engagement… We are working hard to make sure that our physical spaces will be safe and secure for the return of in person programming. It's already clear to us that the convergence of digital and physical engagement will be a truly positive outcome of this challenging time for the art and artists we so love.”
When MCC Theater launches, four LiveLabs will be available to watch immediately. These four shows include:
Frankie & Will by Talene Monahan, starring Ryan Spahn and Michael Urie and directed by Jaki Bradley.
Matthew Lopez’ The Sentinels, directed by Rebecca Taichman, featuring Jane Alexander, Denee Benton, Katrina Lenk and Priscilla Lopez.
Pues Nada by Aziza Barnes, directed by Whitney White, and featuring Ito Aghayere, Alfie Fuller, Karen Pittman, and Kara Young.
C. A. Johnson’s When, starring Kecia Lewis and Antoinette Crowe-Legacy, directed by Taylor Reynolds.
As well as productions, there will also be various panels staged at MCC Theater to relisten to, as well as Uncensored 2020, performed by MCC Youth Company earlier this year. For more information, read here.
