Alexander Street Releases Theatre in Video, Volume II

August 6, 2015

(Alexandria, VA)--Alexander Street recently released its latest collection, Theatre in Video, Vol. II. Designed as a follow up to the popular Theatre in Video, this collection brings together 400 hours of new, international, and contemporary performances; ground-breaking documentaries; and critical instructional series for theatre and drama programs across the globe.

Theatre in Video: Volume II includes live performance and cinematic productions of plays from classical playwrights such as William Shakespeare, Moliere, Voltaire, and Anton Chekhov, while also incorporating new, contemporary writers such as Philip Kan Gotanda, Alexander Buzo, and William Yang.

Users also have unlimited access to several acclaimed documentaries, such as Black Theatre: The Making of a Movement from California Newsreel (1978), documenting the birth of a new theatre out of the Civil Rights activism of the 1950s, '60s and '70s, and Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me from Smart Broad Films (2013), a bold, hilarious, and poignant documentary revealing the uncompromising Tony and Emmy Award-winner both on and off the stage.

Beyond live performance and documentary content, this collection features 65 hours of instructional materials across a wide range of topics, from how to run the front of house to the difference between acting for the stage versus acting for a TV series. These videos will fit seamlessly into any drama or theatre curriculum.
