The Old Vic has announced a partnership with Digital Theatre, which will enable audiences with tickets to see its production of Endgame to access a recording of the show.
Endgame, starring Daniel Radcliffe and Alan Cumming, closed two weeks early this month when theatres shut due to coronavirus, and the Old Vic said it would explore ways for ticket holders to watch a filmed version of the performance if they donated the cost of their ticket rather than ask for a refund.
The theatre has now confirmed a partnership with on-demand service Digital Theatre to offer screenings of Endgame on April 1, 9, 17 and 25.
Ticket holders will also be given free access to Digital Theatre for two weeks, as well as a video message of appreciation from the Endgame cast and a free membership to the Old Vic, giving them priority booking for a year.
Neelay Patel, chief executive of Digital Theatre, said: “At this critical time, when theatres across the country are closed, Digital Theatre wants to support the theatre industry as much as possible. We feel privileged to be in a position where we can help the Old Vic by giving them access to our technology and Endgame ticket holders access to our platform.”
