This is a professional recording of the current U.K. tour, and was the first 360-degree live stage performance ever.
It was available for viewing online for three days only (July 22-24), and allowed viewers to choose what they saw and what angle they wanted to see it from, and to dive on stage and experience the production immersed among the actors.
This DVD has one of the camera feeds which looks to be placed onstage on the bar, almost making it feel like you’re onstage, or looking on from the wings.
The inventor’s of this new technology plan on recording Oliver!, Hairspray, Breakfast At Tiffany’s, A Streetcar Named Desire, and The Witches using this same new technology before the end of 2016.
Also, this production features actors who double as the musicians al la John Doyle's "Sweeney Todd" and "Company."

But things don't go too smoothly for Calamity, as everyone in town favours the new girl and she struggles to keep her jealousy and pride in check. It takes her long standing enemy Wild Bill Hickok to make her see sense, and realise her Secret Love…
With an Oscar nominated score that includes The Black Hills of Dakota , The Deadwood Stage (Whip-Crack-Away) , Just Blew in from the Windy City and the Award winning song Secret Love , don’t miss this new production that blows into your city for one week only.
