Coventry’s Belgrade Theatre is set to host a virtual show that you can watch from the comfort of your sofa.
Whilst indoor live shows are still unable to go ahead, the show must go on – with a digital live performance of Romantics Anonymous.
The musical , directed by Emma Rice, will be performed live at the Bristol Old Vic, before embarking on a virtual tour of the UK, including the Belgrade.
Ahead of the livestreamed performances, each member of the company will be tested for coronavirus before forming a bubble in Bristol.
Following approved sport and film production guidance, rigorous measures will be put in place to enable the cast to perform the entire show without social distancing.
Tickets can be purchased from the Belgrade, and the audience will be invited to tune in on their own devices on September 23 at 7.30pm for a Midlands-tailored performance.
Based on the film Les Émotifs Anonymes by Jean-Pierre Améris and Philippe Blasband, Romantics Anonymous is a love story about breaking the mould and finding the courage to be happy.
Emma Rice said: “I have devoted my life to the live experience and the collective imagination – things that have proved impossible over the last few months.
“Whilst nothing will be able to replace the thrill of a night out at the theatre, this live broadcast is going to be as close to that delicious experience as we can possibly make it!
“Live, fresh, fun and intimate, this will remind us of what it is to share stories, hear music and, if true love has its way, even kiss. Imagine that!
“We are taking the utmost care to protect all of our valued team and, for one week only, we can all experience a live performance again, get lost in a wonderful love story and remember what it was to be socially intimate!”
Romantics Anonymous will embark on its virtual tour from Tuesday, September 22 until Saturday, September 26 and will be broadcast to audiences via Midlands venues on Wednesday 23 September.
