An original musical — Joined at the Heart — based on Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein”, is to be streamed live over the Internet via Second Life.
In the real world, the musical has a thirty-strong cast and will premiere at The Junction, Cambridge, from 1st-4th August, and then move to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival from 12th-18th August.
Second Life will broadcast the show live on Saturday 4th August, at 7.30pm BST.
Geoff Meads (from Arcam), who co-wrote the musical, said, “Music distribution has changed dramatically in recent years with the advent of MP3 and iPod. It seems highly apt that the world of musicals is going the same way.”
