Second Stage Theater to Stream Broadway Performances of Clyde’s

Audiences that can’t make it to Broadway are in for a treat! Clyde’s, the Second Stage Theater production currently running at Broadway’s Hayes Theater, will be streamed online during its final two weeks of performances.

In partnership with production company Assemble Stream, performances between January 4 and January 16, 2022, will be captured live. Theatre fans who aren’t able to attend in person will be given the opportunity to witness a live Broadway performance from home.

“The events of the last 18 months have shown us that there is an appetite for theater in all of its forms and we are excited to bring a simulcast of our Broadway production of Lynn Nottage’s Clyde’s – in real-time to theater fans,” said Second Stage Executive Director Khady Kamara and Assemble Stream’s Katie McKenna in a joint statement. “Nothing will ever replace the experience of attending a Broadway show but these simulcasts hope to capture the one-of-a-kind thrill of a live Broadway performance for audience members who are unable to attend the play in person.”

The simulcast will be captured by five to seven cameras and edited live as the performance happens. All cameras are operated remotely and situated discreetly throughout the Hayes Theater to avoid disrupting the audience in attendance.

The production features three-time Emmy Award-winner Uzo Aduba (In Treatment, Orange is the New Black), two-time Emmy Award-winner Ron Cephas Jones (This is Us, Truth Be Told, Between Riverside and Crazy), Edmund Donovan (Greater Clements), Reza Salazar (Sweat), and Kara Young (Halfway Bitches Go Straight to Heaven).

In Clyde’s, a stirring and funny new play from two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage and her frequent collaborator, director Kate Whoriskey (Ruined, Sweat), a truck stop sandwich shop offers its formerly incarcerated kitchen staff a shot at redemption. Even as the shop’s callous owner, Clyde (played by Aduba), tries to keep them under her thumb, the staff members are given purpose and permission to dream by their shared quest to create the perfect sandwich. You’ll want a seat at the table for this humorous, moving, and urgent play. It’s an example of Nottage’s “genius for bringing politically charged themes to life by embodying them in ordinary characters living ordinary lives” (The Wall Street Journal).
