    I think that this is a good idea for those who are not able (be it financial, location etc) to attend these functions live. I must say though nothing will replace the live show but you can be I’m gonna be there for those shows I cant get to….

    They already have Opera in theatres, atleast at the one where I work at!

    We have live streaming broadcast of the Met, and then repeat performances.

    I think having more musicals would benefit the theatres, the shows themselves and it would keep the fans happy.
