BroadwayHD: Present Laughter
BroadwayHD is an online streaming service on a mission to promote and preserve live theatre, extending the reach of Broadway and Broadway caliber shows to anyone, anywhere. Founded by Broadway producers Stewart F. Lane and Bonnie Comley, BroadwayHD is capturing and then transporting the magic of performance from the stage to The Lucas screen.
Present Laughter follows a self-obsessed actor in the midst of a mid-life crisis. Juggling his considerable talent, ego and libido, the theater's favorite leading man suddenly finds himself caught between fawning ingénues, crazed playwrights, secret trysts and unexpected twists.
Present Laughter marks legendary Academy Award® and Tony Award® winner Kevin Kline's eagerly awaited return to Broadway. Kline's performance in Present Laughter earned him the best actor honors at the 2017 Tony Awards, Outer Critics Circle and Drama Desk Awards. The spectacular cast is headed by three-time Tony® and Emmy® Award nominee Kate Burton (Scandal, Grey's Anatomy), Tony Award® nominee Kristine Nielsen (Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike), and Cobie Smulders (How I Met Your Mother, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back) in her Broadway debut, with direction by Tony Award® nominee Moritz von Stuelpnagel (Hand to God). It is directed for the screen by David Horn.
Present Laughter was nominated for three 2017 Tony Awards® including Best Revival of a Play, and the Tony® winner of Best Leading Actor in a Play
