National Theatre Live brings its London shows to big screen across the United States. Now Broadway will be doing the same thing — in China.
Broadway Worldwide Entertainment Media, which most recently screened the Tony-winning musical “Memphis” in movie theaters, is teaming with China’s Sun New Light Culture Development to produce and distribute two to four musicals a year filmed live in HD, Lorne Manly reports in today’s NYTimes.

Last night I took my two 20+ kids to see the NTL 90-minute, non-stop production of “Medea,” and they both enjoyed it. Airing Broadway shows around the U.S. more often seems like a good deal to me. Unlike NY Times critics, a trip to London to see shows is not in my budget.
