EMMA COMES TO A NEW MAJOR STREAMING PLATFORM 2018

Paul Gordon’s critically acclaimed stage adaptation of Jane Austen’s classic is now available to stream worldwide.  Shot with multiple cameras in HD at the Westside Theatre in New York, EMMA is a hybrid between theatre and film.  In this new streaming model, a show is filmed without an audience with live singing and full orchestrations.  EMMA is now available to stream as a pay per view and is part of a new revolutionary profit sharing model that supports the artists who created the musical.  The SoundStage Musical is a new way to develop musicals for worldwide audiences who would otherwise have no way to experience new work coming out of New York, Chicago and London. Now viewers can watch from anywhere around the world.

ALANIS MORISSETTE BLOGS ABOUT DADDY LONG LEGS

One of my best friends in the world (think: was there for me when no one else was. Never exploited me, supported my secret passions and made me spit my water out on the regular for laughing—the stuff of true, long-standing, LOYAL friendship), Paul is someone who I think has a savant-like talent for putting breathtaking stories to music and theatre at a prolific and grace-yielding speed. Paul Gordon composed the music and lyrics to/for productions of “Emma” across the country and “Jane Eyre” on Broadway…making him my feminist and artistic hero for representing women and the feminine in such a full-breadth honoring way. His new work, Daddy Long Legs is no exception.

Written with John Caird, the Tony award winning director of Les Miserable, this intimate musical tells the story of a young woman ahead of her time who is sent to college to be educated to become a writer by a mysterious benefactor. Daddy Long Legs is a love story that celebrates a woman’s growth and independence.  I highly recommend checking him out. My heart bursts when I am sitting in any seat where I behold his work.
