The West Coast production, starring Jane Kaczmarek and Alfred Molina, will stream to audiences around the world.
The Geffen Playhouse has announced a partnership with BroadwayHD to present select live and captured-live productions from the Los Angeles theater to BroadwayHD subscribers. The Geffen's current production of Eugene O'Neill's Long Day's Journey Into Night, starring Jane Kaczmarek and Alfred Molina, will be the first play presented under the partnership and will mark BroadwayHD's first live stream from a U.S. theater outside of New York City.
Long Day's Journey Into Night will stream live Saturday, March 11, at 10pm EST, followed by a 10-day on-demand encore. BroadwayHD subscribers can watch Long Day's Journey Into Night on BroadwayHD.com, Chromecast, Apple TV, and Roku, iOS, and Android apps. The finished production, following the live event, will also be available to view in select high schools and universities across the country and in more than 3,500 colleges in 40 countries worldwide.
The live stream will be directed by Emmy Award winner David Horn, executive producer of PBS's Great Performances series. Horn also directed BroadwayHD's productions of Roundabout Theatre Company's She Loves Me and Holiday Inn with producers Stewart F. Lane and Bonnie Comley.
Directed by Jeanie Hackett, Long Day's Journey Into Night is playing now in the Gil Cates Theater at the Geffen Playhouse through Saturday, March 18. The play stars Angela Goethals as Cathleen, Stephen Louis Grush as James Tyrone Jr., Emmy nominee Jane Kaczmarek as Mary Cavan Tyrone, Tony nominee Alfred Molina as James Tyrone, and Colin Woodell as Edmund Tyrone.
