'She Loves Me' To Be The First Live Streamed Broadway Show

Watch Jane Krakowski do splits from the comfort of your home.

If you love the theatrics of "She Loves Me"  -- you know, the ones you saw during the 70th Annual Tony Awards (including that killer split by Jane Krakowski) -- but can't make it to Broadway for the real thing, you're in luck. 

According to Variety, The Roundabout Theater Company's revival of the 1963 show will be the first Broadway production to live stream a performance via BroadwayHD on June 30.

Of course, watching a live stream on your home television lacks some of the excitement of being in the room where it happens, but the price -- $9.99 -- is a lot easier to swallow than most Broadway tickets.  

As Variety points out, an offer like this makes sense for "She Loves Me," a limited-engagement show that ends July 10. Having a live stream, and then a recorded version, allows BroadwayHD to entice fans with big names like Krakowski long after the actual show's final curtain drops.

Of course, the news of one Broadway show's live stream makes one naturally speculate whether other big-name productions might go the same route. Perhaps, even, one little-known musical about a 10-dollar founding father without a father?

While everyone went nuts for the selection of "Hamilton" tunes performed live at the White House in March, it's unlikely that a crazy-popular show -- with, we imagine, a long life ahead of it on Broadway -- will be available for public streaming anytime soon.

If you make like Aaron Burr and wait for it, you'll probably be waiting a little longer. 

Catch "She Loves Me" live on Broadway HD on June 30 at 8 p.m. ET.
