Videos included are complete, recently-filmed stage productions of plays, musicals, and operas from the Royal Shakespeare Company, the Young Vic, the Almeida Theatre, Menier Chocolate Factory, and other well-known British companies and venues. Click the "Productions" tab at the top of the screen to see the videos currently available through this database, including INTO THE WOODS, A DOLL'S HOUSE, KING LEAR, DON GIOVANNI, and LONG DAY'S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT, as well as more contemporary plays. New videos are being added regularly, the latest being the Sondheim musical MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG and THE SOAP MYTH, with Noel Coward's PRIVATE LIVES forthcoming. For Doctor Who fans, the production of MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING starring David Tennant as Benedick and Catherine Tate as Beatrice may be of special interest.
In addition to the performance videos, Digital Theatre Plus includes "Making Theatre" interviews with cast and crew on creative and technical production, as well as study guides for several of the works performed.
