With Broadway productions closed through at least the first of the year, Playbill is launching Social Selects, a service providing brand new digital offerings that aim bring a slice of the theatre district to homes worldwide.
The program will kick off August 5 with the first of four different interactive events. Each event will be under 60 minutes and with two–three slots of available sessions, with more offerings to come. Take a look below at the starting lineup.
At This Theatre
Participants will take a virtual tour, hosted by Broadway Up Close owner Tim Dolan, through the historical venues of Times Square.
Seize the Show
A storytelling event from David Carpenter (Puffs, Slava's Snowshow) in which audiences will have a direct hand in determining the outcome as viewers' actions and choices are projected in real-time.
Sommeliers Anna-Christina Cabrales and Brian Carl Long pair wines with participants' favorite Broadway shows, offering insight into wine selection while sharing a love for theatre.
Serving Up Shakespeare
John Tufts (Kate Hamill's Pride and Prejudice) hosts a cooking session, inspired by meals from Shakespearean plays.
The initial experiences range in price from $9.99 to $14.99 and have sessions scheduled through September 10. For more information and to register, visit Playbill.com/SocialSelects.
