Kilburn Media announced today the launch of Road Show Theatrical, a joint venture with The Production Office to produce and fully finance live theatrical productions. The announcement was made today by Kilburn's CEO Mark Manuel and The Production Office's Managing Partner Gregory Young. The long term goal of Road Show Theatrical is to build a well-financed and trusted destination for live theatrical projects, much the same way feature film projects currently make their way to Kilburn Media.
