Toronto: Musical Theatre Radio provides listeners with their music theatre fix
Thursday, May 7, 2020
Theatres are closed around the world with no real timeline for re opening in sight. So how does one get their Musical Theatre fix? That is where Musical Theatre Radio comes to the rescue.
Launched online in Toronto in 2019, MTR plays showtunes from around the world, new and old, popular and rare with a mandate to promote new and lesser known musicals. We have over 800 cast recordings that we draw upon, adding more everyday, including 80+ new musicals we help promote.
We have partnered up with companies around the world (Broadway Licensing, SimG Productions, ContemporaryMusicalTheare.com) to give our listeners and social media followers the best quality theatrical resources available.
On our podcast, "Be Our Guest" we have interviewed such fantastic guests such as Bruce Dow (Actor: Stratford, Broadway). Stuart Brayson (Composer: From Here to Eternity, 2 Dumb) and Glenn Slater (Lyricist: The Little Mermaid, Love Never Dies, School of Rock)
MTR has the look of a mega musical, but backstage the entire thing is run by one man with a passion for musicals and a desire to support the MT community.
