Online Educational Series Brings Broadway Professionals to Students’ Screens Starting Today
New York (November 10, 2016) – Broadway Masters, a digital masterclass from producer Marcus Lovingood (Broadway LIVE, BRAVO, West Side Story…) of Lovingood Studios and award-winning director and choreographer Paul McGill (The Legend of Georgia McBride, A Chorus Line, Spider-Man…), is now available for purchase at BroadwayMasters.org to students around the world with access to a Wi-Fi connection. Broadway Masters brings together the best talent on Broadway to share their journey from the classroom to the Great White Way, in a groundbreaking digital educational program. The series can be streamed to all devices globally.
Featuring Broadway stars including Taye Diggs (RENT, Hedwig and the Angry Inch), Anthony Rapp (RENT, If/Then), Laura Osnes (Grease!, Cinderella), Jon Rua (Hamilton, In the Heights), Courtney Reed (Aladdin, In the Heights), Charlotte D’Amboise (Chicago, A Chorus Line), Nick Adams (Priscilla..., Wicked), Lindsay Mendez (Wicked, Godspell), Kurt Froman (Movin’ Out, Black Swan, NYC Ballet), and a special “turn-the-tables” interview with series director Paul McGill, Broadway Masters provides valuable insight into the journey of making it on Broadway. Through the experiences and stories of some of the most successful actors in the industry, Broadway Masters provides students with insight into what it takes to make it on the boards and stay there.
“Most Broadway hopefuls are in rural cities and far from the opportunities of going to a conservatory or even having a solid theater department at their local college. Now through the power of the internet, we are able to bring the secrets, tips and tricks from the masters themselves to students across the world with the click of a button and a Wi-Fi connection,” said producer Marcus Lovingood. “Students are looking for the street smarts, trade secrets and the vital information that will give them an edge on the competition…in Broadway Masters, we teach the stuff they don’t teach in schools.”
Each Broadway Masters episode includes 45 minutes of in-depth educational interview segments showcasing one actor’s advice, along with their personal story of how they made it on Broadway. The series is accompanied by a hardcover Broadway Masters book that contains the entire program transcript and resources from the Masters interviewed for $49. All 10 masterclasses will be available as a package for $199, with bundles starting at $69; the unlimited streaming package includes a PDF of the Broadway Masters book for the first 1,000 students who purchase. The hardcover book ships just in time for the holidays, December 15.
