If you can’t come to us, then we’ll come to you! For the first time in 40 years, BPP is unable to produce new works, so we’re taking this time to focus on the great shows of our past. We’ve made available – for your viewing pleasure – 25 of our hit plays and musicals over the past decade. We call it BPPFLIX.
HOW DO I WATCH THEM?
It’s simple! Just make a one-time donation of any amount by clicking the donate button below. Please keep in mind that this is a fundraiser for BPP – we’ve lost a significant sum of income from having to cancel/postpone shows and face an uncertain future ahead of us. Your donation will help us continue to support our artists and staff, handle the notable loss of income, and weather the storm so that we can be prepared to perform for you LIVE when it is safe to do so. Please donate what you can.
After Paypal notifies us that you’ve made a donation by clicking on the DONATE button below, we’ll email you a password (within 24hrs). Click on the link at the top of this screen, enter that password, and you’ll have UNLIMITED access to 25 plays and musicals!
WHAT PLAYS & MUSICALS ARE AVAILABLE?
The plays and musicals available on BPPFLIX are made possible through the permission and generous support of our alumni playwrights. These plays were never written or directed to be watched in this manner, so we appreciate their willingness to allow us to share them.
Please note that these plays were initially recorded for archival purposes only and never with the intention of sharing publicly. We record them so that there’s a reference for the playwright when making rewrites and for the director if the show is remounted elsewhere. The quality of the filming was never intended to be broadcast level. Some recordings are multi-camera shots that have been edited together and some are nothing more than a medium-quality camera in the back of the room. But we’ve made sure that all films on the BPPFLIX platform are of a high enough quality to be watchable.
BPP has produced more than 500 plays in its 40 year history. If a play you’re looking for is not on the list below, it’s because of one of the following reasons:
- It was not filmed or it was filmed in an old format that isn’t shareable online (does anyone still have a CD drive???)
- The quality of the filming is too poor to share
- We do not have permission to share the archival recording
HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO WATCH THEM?
After your one-time donation, the BPPFLIX platform will be available for you to watch until September 1, 2020. At that time we expect to be able to provide you with more LIVE theatre!
