A newly formed nonprofit called The League of Live Stream Theater (LOLST) today announced a service to bring world-class theater into homes, schools and community centers around the world. LOLST provides the production, technical, financial, and marketing solutions to bring nonprofit theater to a global audience.
Founders Jim Augustine and Oren Michels, veterans in the theater and technology industries, have a vision to make Broadway and regional theater more accessible than ever before, driving new audiences to new works, increasing awareness for world-class stages and artists, and helping these nonprofit institutions to thrive for another generation.
