Tech Stack: Live-streamed theatre, Sydney Festival and more…

Our weekly tech round-up from the world of ticketing and associated industries…

League of Live Stream Theater

Theatre and tech entrepreneurs Jim Augustine and Oren Michels have introduced the League of Live Stream Theater (LOLST), a non-profit service that will bring Broadway and US regional theatre productions to homes worldwide. The organisation will make its debut with a two-week simulcast of Second Stage’s ‘Between Riverside and Crazy’ from January 31 until February 12.  

BTS fans to snap up concert special tickets

Tickets are now on sale for a BTS concert special that has been cinematic cut, re-edited and remixed for the big screen. ‘BTS: Yet to Come’ will hit cinemas next month, and is a film of the K-Pop group’s most recent concert, BTS in Busan. The concert was recorded in front of a sold-out crowd in Busan, South Korea in October last year. 

Sydney Festival

Technical Direction Company (TDC), a provider of event and entertainment technology solutions, and sponsors of Sydney Festival, has worked with the event across projection mapping and more. The series of events that make up the festival, which is currently running until January 29, celebrates culture, creativity and live performance. The festival has also included a nod to iconic feminist Frida Kahlo through a biographical exhibition (pictured).
