    “Livestreamed” refers to performances that are streamed online simultaneously as the actors are performing. “Recorded and streamed” refers to performances that are pre-recorded or make use of an archival video, and are then played back for an audience. Each performance type requires a different set of permissions. Therefore, permissions for “recorded streamed” productions may not be available even if our website indicates that “livestream” rights are available.
