Info in the Arts: Digital Theatre Plus now more than plays!

digital theatre plus logoIf you haven’t stumbled across this yet, I wanted to make you aware of a newer resource that the library subscribes to, Digital Theatre PlusWe subscribed to this last year to support the theatre department with a streaming drama resource.  It is a growing database of major plays, including contemporary British theatre productions and portions of the Broadway Theatre Archive, a collection of plays produced for television.  However, it has started to expand to support of other forms of performing arts.  It currently contains two musicals, Into the Woods, and Merrily We Roll Along.  This summer it added a collection from the Royal Opera House that now has six operas and three ballets.

If you have courses in which you want to engage with drama, music theatre, opera, or dance, consider this as a resource, particularly for easy out-of-class viewing of streaming performance.  Or just consider it an option if you are looking for some entertainment this weekend!
