by Kathryn Willingham

Live TV Musicals have become more and more popular over the last decade. As opposed to movie adaptations or pro-shots (musicals that are professionally filmed live on stage but edited and released later – think Hamilton on Disney+ or Come From Away on AppleTV+), a live tv musical is filmed and broadcast live especially for television. It’s less about recreating the feeling of in person, live theater and more about creating something entirely distinct and new.
