While the texts of plays can serve as lasting documents, the productions are ephemeral; a live performance is gone when the curtain falls. And yet the collaborative elements of theatre in performance—the work of the actors, directors, and designers—have tremendous scholarly and educational value long after a production closes. Now, faculty, scholars, and patrons of the performing arts will be able to revisit great performances again and again, and these landmark events can become a permanent part of the curriculum.

Theatre in Performance combines the most important video content types used in theatre education (filmed stage performances, master classes, documentaries, and training material) with top-of-the-line teaching tools (playlists, video clips, on-screen transcripts).
