Broadway Unlocked

Broadway Unlocked Broadway Unlocked is a digital universe for anyone, anywhere to experience the world of the theatre before they've even stepped into the lobby.

We believe in the power of the arts. We know first hand what possibilities lie in purposeful technology built to help connect, amplify and strengthen an industry. And we are the key that makes it possible to unlock that potential for all live theatre makers, institutions and the communities they serve. Scaleable industries like travel and filmmaking have been powerfully transformed by technology innovations and investments. Though the health of live theatre has been inextricably linked to the health of our cities, our economy and our culture, we have been left behind. To thrive, it is vital that we are able to understand, access and implement the same technology-based innovations as the industries around us -- from the largest commercial theatre company to local non profit institutions to the individual theatre maker. Through forward thinking digital solution development, subsidized access to technology & tools, cross disciplinary partnerships and education, BU is making it easier for theatre makers to make theatre and we’re helping to usher in a new era that’s more relevant and powerful than ever before.

Mission: Broadway Unlocked bridges the gap between theatre and technology that empowers the arts to become stronger and more valuable in our rapidly changing world.

The Broadway Unlocked #Giveback Concert: Better Than Medicine (Kennedy Caughell)

Did you know friend of BU’s Nathan Tysen‘s Amélie Grammy Nomination Is First to Score With London Cast Recording Since 1999?

The first was in 1984, when “CATS” won, and again in 1999 when the London cast recording of “Chicago” was nominated.

Here’s one of our favorite songs Nathan wrote for the #giveback concert to celebrate his nom!

We believe the internet has the power to change the trajectory of our industry.

This is not a moment. This is a movement. And this week along with all the weeks since 2013 and all the weeks in front of us, we’ll be sharing our digital content that amplifies diverse voices, digs into tough conversations and celebrates the power of live theatre and artists.

This is a rare moment in time when we have outright permission to walk away from how we always did things. You have permission to start from scratch and to take risks. The rules were made up, anyway!

What intrigues me about this song is how Collabro’s cover uses their voices and harmonies where Coldplay featured orchestras. I’m excited to hear if this technique is displayed more in their new album, Love Like This.
