Digital Theatre Launch Captioned Productions With Much Ado About Nothing Watchalong

Digital Theatre have partnered with Stagetext to make acclaimed, entertaining theatre even more accessible.

From Thursday 18th September, some of Digital Theatre’s most popular streamed productions will be available with the option of captioning, including Much Ado About Nothing, Long Day’s Journey Into Night, A Doll’s House, Far From The Madding Crowd, Into The Woods and its newest release, the Almeida Theatre’s production of Ghosts.

To celebrate the launch of captioning, Digital Theatre will be hosting one of our famed global online watchalongs, whereby people around the world press play at the same time, and Tweet along with the action. The honour of the first ever FULLY CAPTIONED Digital Theatre global watchalong falls to Josie Rourke’s acclaimed production of Much Ado About Nothing starring David Tennant and Catherine Tate, captured live at the Wyndhams Theatre in London’s West End in September 2011,
