What is Live-Stream Theatre?

image40

Live-Stream Theatre is one actor/character performing in one location (with their own audience) while another actor/character is in a different geographic location with a separate audience. Each of the audiences are viewing the same play at the same time, but through the perspective of different characters. Just as each character views the other character online, so does the audience.
